This week in the Neighborhood, we’re highlighting an informative podcast featuring Dr. Brenda Jones Harden, an associate professor at the University of Maryland College Park. In this episode of Zero to Three’s “Little Kids, Big Questions” series, Dr. Harden describes “how young children develop self-control, starting even in the first year of life, and how parents can set limits with love.” How Babies Begin to Develop Self-Control in the First Three Years of Life is only 25 minutes long, but full of useful information. There’s also a transcript of the episode that you can access here.
