Social Group for Ages 2nd - 5th Grade
Some kids have trouble regulating themselves…
and they suffer for it.
Can your child resist distractions? Inhibit impulses? Bounce back from difficult emotions? Delay gratification and plan ahead?
Self-control has been defined in many ways - as conscientiousness, self-discipline, or willpower. However, you define it, self-control is about being able to regulate yourself.
Goals: (1) Positive Peer Interaction
(2) Self-Control & Emotion Regulation
(3) Skills to Practice at Home
WHY IT MATTERS
Extensive research has shown that young children with poor self-regulation skills tend to make less academic progress. Throughout the school years, they are more likely to experience anxiety, depression, and aggressive behavior problems.
Our social group teaches your child how to effectively regulate his/her emotions, develop positive peer relations and progress academically; all in a fun and engaging environment.
