“Self-control in childhood predicts future success”

| 1 Comment

Self-control in childhood predicts future success is the title of a column in the Boston Globe. It doesn’t cover anything new that you wouldn’t have read in other resources at My Best Posts About Helping Students Develop Their Capacity For Self-Control, but it’s a short-and-sweet accessible summary of research on the topic.

By the way, some of the self-control lesson plans (including hand-outs) in my book are available free at the Eye on Education (the publisher of the book) website.

  1. Thanks for bringing up the Boston Globe article. I’ve always been a firm believer of students being taught self-control (as opposed to imposing control over them, which gradually loses its effectiveness anyway).

    I especially loved the self-control resources link you left near the end of the post. Might I add my own (self-tested) strategies for teaching self-control in class?
