ZERO TO THREE, v35 n2 p24-31 Nov 2014
Self-regulation is the ability to control one's thoughts, actions, and emotions. When children are better able to follow directions or control impulses they are better prepared for school and for life. Sesame Workshop has and continues to create rich, meaningful content that places self-regulation skills and the strategies needed for school readiness at the forefront. This article describes how--through songs, stories, parodies, as well as mobile games and apps--Sesame Workshop uses the power of media to model and help teach young children how to regulate their emotions, thinking, and behavior during everyday challenges and experiences, such as playing with others or learning a new skill.
