Self-regulation is a term for something each person is always doing. It’s both simple and complex. It has to do with how we recover from stress and take care of ourselves. It starts in infancy with bonding and feeding, and continues with managing ourselves in family life. It keeps developing as we learn to function in school, and goes on as we differentiate from our families to become adults.
Parents of a baby or a young child might hear about self-regulation. An educator might mention self-regulation issues. Typically the focus is on attention and inhibition of impulses, yet self-regulation is as much about action as it is about inhibition. Each of us self-regulates the best we can every moment.
