These self-regulation skills, also known as emotional regulation, helps us manage our emotions when we’re disappointed, angry, or frustrated. All children have tantrums from time to time, but children with emotional regulation issues often have tantrums more frequently and for a longer time than their peers and become easily upset without a clear cause. OTs help by problem-solving with parents to address difficulties with emotional regulation.
