Movies That Promote Self-Control
Self-control isn't a character strength that comes easily to all kids. Whether they're toddlers, teens, or somewhere in between, many struggle to pay attention to (and manage) their thoughts, feelings, and impulses. But these movies can help by providing excellent role models and repeated "wins" over traits like recklessness and impulsiveness. From Elsa learning to control her powers in Frozen to Luke Skywalker learning to use the Force in Star Wars, these exciting, engaging movies can teach kids important lessons about self-reflection, focus, and the consequences of their actions. (See even more movies and TV shows that promote self-control.)
