Co-regulation is the most simple form of interaction and communication. It is, simply, when one person takes an action in response to another person’s action.  It is about being present in the moment, not having any goal or task in mind and neither party is in control of the situation. In order for it to be true co-regulation, the child cannot be prompted as to what to do.  He or she should begin to realize that he or she can bring something meaningful to the interaction.  Try to help your child not take over the interaction, trying to control how you respond or what you do and say.
