Self-regulation refers to the ability to control one's emotions, thoughts, and behaviors.
It is an important skill for children to develop as it helps them manage their emotions and behaviors effectively and adapt to changing situations.
Children who are raised in detached households may have difficulty developing self-regulation skills because they do not receive the emotional support and guidance that is necessary for healthy emotional development.
They may also struggle with impulsivity and difficulty managing their emotions and behaviors.
On the other hand, involved or nurturing parenting styles, in which parents are responsive to their child's needs and provide emotional support, have been linked to better self-regulation skills and overall well-being in children.
It is important for parents to be attentive to their child's emotional needs and to provide a supportive and nurturing environment to promote healthy self-regulation skills.
