    If you point out a behaviour that needs to be checked, such as yelling or hitting, and redirect that behaviour to something that is acceptable, you are showing them what to look for themselves and showing them acceptable options for that behaviour. If you do that consistently and reinforce that they can change to the wanted behaviour themselves then this will turn into self-regulation after a while.
