CHILDREN'S BOOKS TO SUPPORT
ABOUT PRSIST BOOKS
Self-regulation refers to our ability to control our thinking, behaviours, emotional reactions and social interactions to achieve our goals or react appropriately to the situation – even if it is difficult to do so.
These books aim to support children to follow social conventions, be helpful, control their emotional reactions, to play by the rules, follow directions, control natural impulses, to focus and sustain attention, resist distraction, and persist in the face of challenge.
