Does it feel like a constant struggle to get your children into predictable patterns of eating, sleeping and other daily routines and transitions?
Experts from St. David’s Center for Child & Family Development offer wisdom and practical tips on helping your children with self-regulation.
One of the major developmental tasks in early childhood is self-regulation, which includes settling into reasonably predictable and healthy patterns of eating, sleeping and other routines. Even as older children and adults, we are disregulated at times, which can disrupt learning, good relationships and other aspects of our lives. This week’s Mom Enough guests, Robin Campbell and Cheryl Lundsgaard, shed light on what self-regulation means, how we can help our children become self-regulated, and how important it is to discover what works best for each unique member of our family.
