Paper Highlights

  • Self-regulation skills have an important role in both early cognitive abilities and social behaviours.
  • Children who have a better understanding of others’ minds display more social competency, but this cognitive perspective-taking ability is not related to aggressive behaviours.
  • Intervention research that targets positive social development should focus on both self-regulation skills and mental state understanding.
