How do you help children develop impulse control?
posted by mermily to Human Relations (8 answers total) 19 users marked this as a favorite
I am a first grade teacher and generally have a wide skill set for remediating kids' academic difficulties. However, I'm finding that frequently the kids who struggle the most academically or socially have serious impulse control issues that make them unable to focus their attention on the task at hand. I wanted to see if I could find any recommendations from parents or people who work with kids about how to help children develop impulse control, or metacognitive skills to help them direct their attention. Any advice, or book recommendations in particular would be appreciated. Thank you!
