Students are currently experiencing a higher number of difficulties at school than in previous years. Teachers are dealing with a multitude of different behaviours and emotional issues in classrooms. Behaviour management is an ongoing struggle for teachers, with students exhibiting high impulsivity, inappropriate social interactions, and excessive anxiety in the classroom. To effectively educate students, it is time to look at the cause of their struggles, what has changed for the 21st-century learner, and what can educators do about it. This research investigates how to effectively teach self-regulation to students and the positive outcomes that come with teaching a self-regulated student. Students who efficiently self-regulate emotions and behaviours experience higher success in academia and social relationships, along with continued successes and accomplishments into adulthood. This paper will examine three areas: the history of self-regulation, how to teach students self-regulation appropriately, and the overall benefits of self-regulation. Exploring self-regulation and current issues in the classroom will give educators, parents, and community stakeholders a detailed understanding of how to create success in the classroom for students.?
