For this task, imagine that you have been asked to contribute comments for a blog that discusses research on emotional regulation throughout the lifespan. This includes developmental changes during childhood as well as how emotional regulation changes in adults over age 60. The intended audience for this blog is a general population of adults who may not necessarily have a psychology background or be familiar with terms such as “emotional regulation” and “inhibitory control.” Although you should not provide formal “dictionary” definitions for these terms, you should clearly explain these terms throughout your blog.
