First and foremost, Control is the ability to move deliberately which means modifying their movements to achieve their goals. That's tricky enough in a static environment. But the world is a dynamic place, always moving and changing.


At first, little ones are just trying to keep up. But as they develop control over their body, they're learning to do more than react. They're learning to make their own impact.


Here's a quick story to show you what's happening when children set their sights on accomplishing their goal...

Introduction to Control

Children develop self-control by learning to adapt to their circumstances.

”I want to make a sand castle. The sand is dry. Daddy said I need to add water.”

Children grow up in a dynamic world that is always moving and changing. This trains the brain to think on its feet.

“I wonder how much water I should add?”

Over time as children learn to anticipate and adapt as part of life’s flow.

“I think I need more water."

"I think I need more sand."

As the body and brain learn to work together, the brain is developing the ability for nuanced thinking including problem solving, prediction, consequence, and compromise.

"I'm good at making sand castles."

An open mind begins with embracing change.

Learning to manage change means giving children the power to control it. This is the way they learn best... by doing.
