Many people believe that students who are successful in school possess greater degrees of intelligence and ability, while those who are not successful possess less intelligence and ability. However, significant research on school and life performance suggests that what matters more than intelligence and ability is a set of qualities such as persistence, self-control, curiosity, self-confidence, positive mindset and grit (determination). These qualities, generally referred to as self-regulation, have a substantial effect on how motivated, engaged and focused the learner is toward achieving meaningful goals. This session will briefly explain the foundations of self-regulation and how it is developed. Parents will be offered useful and practical strategies to help their children be better prepared for the complexities of life beyond the K-12 setting. Time will be devoted to posing questions and seeking answers for raising balanced and self-regulated children.
