Re: Do you think knowing how human self-regulation develops is important?

Important for who? And important for what purposes?

I think your original question is so broad that there can't possibly be an answer to it.

Understanding how hemoglobin works is necessary for some medical professionals, but for me as a regular user of breathing it doesn't really matter if I've even heard of hemoglobin, let alone the science behind it.

Important in regards to treating (etc) ADHD.

Understanding neurodevelopment helps understand treatment (etc) for lack of neurodevelopment.

I do not think we need a science degree to understand general conditions that promote development.

Example, we know consistent abnormal distresses make things worse.

We know that supervised free play makes things better.

Simple but very important information in regards to treatment, etc.

Re: Do you think knowing how human self-regulation develops is important?

I think it's important to know and understand as much as we can about how our body and mind develops and functions as it relates to our overall well-being, not just limited to adhd. Credible and reliable information is so readily available these days, it really can be maddening at times to see the depths of ongoing willful ignorance.

I feel all too often we rely on and put our faith in an "expert" of some sort hoping they will competently and completely steer us in the right direction while we really have no, or very little, clue what they're talking about when offering us solutions.

Many don't really make time to educate themselves on the basic foundations of what makes a body tick healthily in the first place. We just automatically rely on more outside sources for our answers, just as we've been taught to do, and often assume things are going just as they should be because the expert said so. Until it doesn't.

I know I didn't appreciate, recognize, or understand the effects of certain foods, beverages, hygiene products, cleaning products, etc. on my overall well-being until I learned more about the actual processes of the various systems in my own body. Had I not taken those extra steps on my own, I'd still be deeply immersed in what was causing me more harm and incredible discomfort.

In learning more, however, I added a whole new level of issues to deal with. Learning doesn't always give us the answers we want, but from what I've experienced, it seems to greatly increase the accuracy rate in finding more specific answers that genuinely help my biology vs. generically painting me with same broad brush as the rest of the population, and likely harming me even more, albeit subtly and slowly.

As far as treating ADHD, from the professional's point of view, yes I agree that what you're saying is definitely important.

Re: Do you think knowing how human self-regulation develops is important?

Yes, since it speaks to the "lack of inhibition" symptom.

Re: Do you think knowing how human self-regulation develops is important?

I can control myself pretty well from interrupting people or being pretty conscious of what I'm saying, though it took practice. I mean there are many times when I walk away from a conversation and I think why didn't I say that or why did I say that? But there are so many moments in life that there will be more time and not a big deal too be to hard on yourself about these things.
