The Expectation Gap

Tuning In, ZERO TO THREE’s national Parent Survey, revealed that a majority of parents believe children start developing self-control early in life – much earlier than brain science indicates is possible.

The disconnect between what many parents believe and the realistic ability of children to master self-control results in an important expectation gap that can cause a lot of frustration and stress for both parents and children.

To fill this Expectation Gap, we offer a range of resources to guide parents in knowing what to expect and how to nurture the development of self-control in their young children below.
