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.
