An Adeona Family Podcast: An Early Childhood Journey
Episode 10: The Importance of Co-Regulation in Caregiving
On this episode of the Adeona Family Podcast: An Early Childhood Journey, we discuss the need for co-regulation with significant care-givers in the lives of children and how this helps children build the vital skills necessary in order to self regulate.
We offer practical advice on what co-regulation can look like and examine the importance of entering into interactions with your child in a calm and non-reactive manner.
What is Co-Regulation?
Co-regulation is the process by which people are able to adjust themselves when interacting with another, so they can maintain a regulated state. These responsive interactions provide the support and modeling children need to understand, express, and modulate their thoughts, feelings and behaviours.
