Self-Regulation in Children Birth to Five: Development, Deterrents, Support and Interventions

Self-regulation in the lives of children from birth through age five has recently become the object of much research. This paper explores the healthy development of self-regulation as well as the deterrents to its development within the first five years of life. It is necessary to understand the risk factors associated with the disruption of self-regulation in young children to accurately apply interventions in support of its repair. This work concludes with a brief discussion of the relationship between self- regulation and Adlerian psychology.
