Self-Regulation Skills in Young Children

Activities and Strategies for Practitioners and Parents

Author
This essential handbook for all early years practitioners provides a wider awareness of self-regulation in babies and young children. It emphasises the importance of giving children positive attachments and empathy, and provides fun ideas of how to promote coping strategies for them.

The book explains what self-regulation is and why it is important, as well as making child and brain development easy to understand. It shows what self-regulation looks like in practice and how early years practitioners can support children to develop it with 30+ activities. The first part of the book offers accessible explanations and theory, and the second half provides reflective points, activities and case studies to support some of the information provided in part one. The strategies, activities and tips can be easily applied in childcare settings and shared with parents.

Press reviews for: Self-Regulation Skills in Young Children

Beverley Petch-Sencier, Head Teacher of the award-winning Kensington International Kindergarten and International Schools Association of Thailand (ISAT)National committee member.

An essential tool for parents, teachers and carers, hoping to positively influence a child's journey into a future that holds increasing uncertainty. Sue's easy to follow theories and practical activities allow you to facilitate a haven of learning in which children feel physically and emotionally safe.

Pat Tomlinson, Early Years Trainer and Assessor

Reading this book is similar to listening to Sue's training webinars - packed full of useful information with links to her sources of information so the reader can further explore the subject. I liked the layout of the book - the first half is the theory sections with reflective tasks to help keep the reader on track and think about their own practice. The second half has lots of practical ideas and case studies which helps to put the theory into practice. The book is written in plain English and is aimed at new practitioners, parents/carers and others who want to refresh their knowledge.
