Influences of Children's and Adolescents' Action-Control Processes on School Achievement, Peer Relationships, and Coping with Challenging Life Events
Geldhof, G. John; Little, Todd D.
New Directions for Child and Adolescent Development, n133 p45-59 Fall 2011
Self-regulation represents a core aspect of human functioning that influences positive development across the life span. This chapter focuses on the action-control model, a key facet of self-regulation during childhood and early adolescence. The authors discuss the development of action-control beliefs, paying particular attention to their relationship to indices of positive development. They then discuss how linking the action-control model with other theories of self-regulation can inform our understanding of self-regulation across the life span. (Contains 1 figure.)
