    What's called emotional regulation refers to the process by which a person recognizes their emotional upset and can satisfy their emotional need without having to upset others. Parents who never allow kids to become self-aware of uncomfortable emotional feelings or to learn how to comfort and help themselves, instead always doing this for them, interfere with their need to learn how to regulate their own emotions.
