Improved emotional regulation. Control of anger/frustration Control of sadness Control of excitement Control of aggression - Decrease in aggressive behavior from 5 to 7 Control of impulses/desires - (aka delay of gratification) Walter Michelle did study on this. He brought kids into a lab, put a couple m and m’s on the table and told them he was leaving the room and that they could have the whole bag as long as they waited for him to get back. Wanted to know stratigies kids used. Some kids didn’t look - distraction. Some kids used transformation - Played with the m and m’s pretending they were cars or bugs. One licked them all and some kids could not wait. A couple used private speech - talked to themselves outloud.
