“From the earliest months of a baby’s life to the academic pressures and social dynamics of the teen years, children are learning and practicing how to understand and manage feelings, communicate their needs effectively and face challenges with strength and resilience. They are building “self-regulation,” the ability to calm down when they are upset and control the impulse to lash out in risky ways. And they are learning to try again when they fail or to use their best thinking to resolve a conflict or solve a difficult problem. But all of those skills that are part of self-regulation begin with ‘co-regulation,’ in the context of a caring, responsive parent-infant relationship.”
