    I'd like to do some reading/learning about impulse control/self control in kids in general, and particularly in gifted kids. I want to have some understanding of how impulse control develops and if any kind of coaching/activity/intervention can improve impulse control.

    Can any one recommend resources?

    Thank you!

    One resource, written in bite-size articles and in layman's terms, is Understood.org.
    A few links to begin with -
    1) https://www.understood.org/
    2) https://www.understood.org/en/articles/understanding-impulsivity
    3) https://www.understood.org/en/articles/self-control-what-it-means-for-kids

    When looking for information on impulse control, you might also use the search term "executive function."
    A few links to begin with -
    1) https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC4084861/
    2) https://developingchild.harvard.edu/science/key-concepts/executive-function/
    3) https://www.sciencedirect.com/topics/psychology/executive-function
    4) https://www.hoagiesgifted.org/blog_hop_executive_function.htm
    5) https://www.davidsongifted.org/?s=executive+function

    When it comes to advocacy, Wrightslaw is an invaluable resource.
    A few links to begin with -
    1) https://www.wrightslaw.com/

    Best wishes on your research!
