Self-Regulation Toolkit

This tool aims to help parents, teachers, family members, caregivers, aupairs, grandparents and others to help children express their emotions and learn how to cope.


Self-Regulation is the ability to control emotions, thinking, behaviour and motor actions in different situations. When a child experiences dysregulation they aren’t able to diffuse their negative emotions. These emotions can take control leading to over-the-top reactions, outbursts, or meltdowns.
