Brief Session Description

It’s a common sight to see a child laughing gleefully at a funny face or to suddenly run up to you and give you a hug. Children, especially young ones, are known for their spontaneity and unrestrained expressions of their feelings. In other words, they can be quite impulsive. In some cases, children’s impulsivity can be humorous or endearing. In some cases, though, it can become annoying, distracting, or may cause harm to them or someone else. You can teach children impulse control if you take the right approach. Start by introducing strategies for impulse control, providing teachable moments, establishing expectations, and modeling self-control.
