Past research has demonstrated that self‐regulation is essential for the development and maintenance of health and well‐being in childhood and across the lifespan. Given the growing evidence of its benefits, there have been many interventions developed to improve self‐regulation skills in youth. A systematic review and meta‐analysis were conducted to assess the effectiveness of interventions that promote self‐regulation among 0‐19 year olds, in addition to the effects of such interventions on health and social outcomes.
