In this week's episode, we're talking about why self-regulation is important and how to teach the skills with Desiree Murray, a senior research scientist and associate director of research at the Frank Porter Graham Child Development Institute, who recently published a report on self-regulation as part of a collaboration with researchers at Duke's Center for Child and Family Policy.
