Self-management, which is also referred to as “self-control” or “self-regulation,” is the ability to regulate one’s emotions, thoughts, and behaviours’ effectively in different situations. This includes managing stress, delaying gratification, motivating oneself, and setting and working toward personal and academic goals. Learners with strong self-management skills arrive to class prepared, pay attention, follow directions, allow others to speak without interruption, and work independently with focus.
Why This is important
Higher self-management in young children is correlated with positive outcomes such as high school completion and higher income levels later in life. Lower self-management is correlated with chronic health problems, financial difficulties, substance abuse, and criminal involvement.
