The ability to manage emotions as an adult is not an innate skill; it must be taught at a young age. Many problem behaviors actually stem from the child's inability to regulate his or her emotions. By working to teach them these skills at a young age, children are able to verbalize how they are feeling and then problem solve ways to deal with those feelings. When children know how to manage their feeling through instruction and practice when they are calm, they are able to implement those strategies when they really need them and essentially change the climate of the classroom one child at a time.
