We are seeing the most extraordinary results when educators and parents practice Self-Reg. There are also MANY Self-Reg misunderstandings out there, even from those advocating for self-regulation as a foundation of education. In this video blog, I explore 5 misconceptions that I often come across often in my work as the Executive Director of Dr. Stuart Shanker‘s organization, The MEHRIT Centre (TMC).
- Misconception #1: Shanker Self-Reg is the same thing as Social Emotional Learning (SEL).
- Misconception #2: Having good self-regulation means: not misbehaving, showing accountability, having good self-control.
- Misconception #3: Only students have problems with self-regulation.
- Misconception #4: Working on self-regulation means: reporting on student work habits, independence, organization, and problem-solving,
- Misconception #5: There is very little that schools can do for students who struggle with self-regulation if their problems stem from difficulties encountered in the early years or their day-to-day home life.
