Self-regulation is the key when children learn to pioneer the path of their lifes and to take their life in their own hands. Jouni Veijalainen’s, Jyrki Reunamo’s and Alisa Alijoki’s article Children’s self-regulation skills in the Finnish day care environment has been accepted for publication in the Journal of Early Childhood Education Research. In the article, it is shown clearly that children’s skills are not separate but are highly intertwined. We hope that the article helps educators to see the ingredients of self-regulation better. Because social skills are also related to self-regulation, these skills expand to shared other-regulation too. It means that children learn to shape of things to come.
