Example 6: Some children need more than others in learning to regulate their emotions. These kids require a lot of effort to keep themselves emotionally regulated. They do best with stability. If the family situation is chaotic or the family is very uptight, teaching children to grin and bear it, that tough kids don't cry, these children will have a lot of trouble. Even in a normal family, such children need extra help. (San Francisco Chronicle, 2009)
