Executive functioning is the ability to regulate one's behavior in a positive way. It includes working memory, inhibitory control, and mental flexibility. Toxic stress is a factor that can have an adverse reaction on executive functioning. These are highly related; if a child has toxic stress, they are much more likely to have low executive functioning. For example, I know that children that grow up in toxic environments, such as with arguing parents, are more likely to struggle with executive function. From experience, those raised in healthy environments are more engaged and likely to have high executive functioning and take initiative to learn.
