Kids’ Involvement in Mentoring Programs at School Help Them Control Emotions

A new study initiated by the Researchers at University of Rochester Medical Center has suggested that teaching self control skills like anger management to kids in school using mentoring programs extends a positive effect on their classroom behavior.

"This study suggests that with appropriate guidance from a trained adult, young children are capable of learning a great deal about their emotions and skills for handling their emotions effectively and those skills can have direct, positive benefits for their functioning in school", said Peter Wyman, Ph. D., lead author of the study and associate professor of Psychiatry at the Medical Center.

The study involved 226 students, possessing behavioral or social problems at school, from two different elementary schools.

In addition, the study claims that the children enrolled in a school-run mentoring program showed more capability to handle anger and other emotions compared to others, thereby facing fewer disciplinary referrals.

Apart from posing improvement in almost all the classroom behavior fields, the children were reported to have a 43 percent decrease in mean suspensions in comparison to the others who were not a part of the program.
