I f you have 5 minutes, check out this video from Harvard on child development.  There is also a link for ways to help children develop critical skills for success in the classroom and in life!

"Executive function and self-regulation  skills are the mental processes that enable us to plan, focus attention, remember instructions, and juggle multiple tasks successfully. Just as an air traffic control system at a busy airport safely manages the arrivals and departures of many aircraft on multiple runways, the brain needs this skill set to filter distractions, prioritize tasks, set and achieve goals, and control impulses."
