Helping kids of all ages to live a more active life through FUNctional movement.
Coregulation is the way caregivers and children work together to manage and regulate the child’s emotional experiences. Coregulation aims to foster emotional well-being and secure attachments.
By providing a safe and supportive environment, parents/caregivers help their children to regulate their emotions effectively. Through shared experiences of emotions (e.g. joy, sadness, excitement, frustration) children learn to recognize and manage their feelings by watching adults manage their feelings.
Consistency is key. When caregivers consistently respond to a child’s emotional needs, a sense of trust and security is nurtured.
Children who experience co-regulation develop better social skills. By observing and mimicking their caregivers, children learn how to navigate social interactions, manage conflicts and express empathy.
By watching parents/caregivers, children gradually learn how to manage and self-regulate their own emotions independently. Children begin to independently self-regulate around the age of 8.
