Self-control is the ability of your child to regulate their emotions. This encompasses controlling impulses, delaying gratification, persisting in challenging circumstances, waiting patiently, and controlling their temper.
Numerous studies, including a landmark study conducted on 1,000 kids over three-decades, have found the level of self-control in children to be one of the most significant predictors of their health, wealth, and success as adults.
Self-control is so crucial because it is strongly tied to decision-making. Kids with a shortage of self-control take more risks. This risk-taking, over time, exposes them to a greater risk of negative behaviours, such as drinking, smoking, poor diet, irresponsible spending, and addictions.
Self-control in kids is a keystone capacity. As kids enter their teens, their experiences move farther from our control. This is when they begin discovering who they are and how they fit in the world. As they become exposed to broader experiences, we need them to have adequate self-control so they can navigate safely and effectively.
The Superpower of Self-control will teach your child self-control strategies to navigate effectively through life. These strategies teach them to utilise their executive functions to control unhealthy desires, align their actions to their values, and optimise for long term goals over short term temptations.
