Hello + welcome to this tiny space on the internet! I created this blog (+ changed the name twice since) 14 years ago as a creative outlet from my career in the emergency room as a PA. After spending the past 7 (or so) years on social media outlets, I have decided to delete all of the ones associated with this blog and get back to the heart of blogging.

In recent years there has been a lot of talk about co-regulating with your child. The benefits are clear and the science is sound, but how do you do it? How do you co-regulate with your child and what do you do when you’re struggling to regulate your own emotions?
Dr. Sarah Bren joins me to share more about what co-regulation is and strategies you can use to help your children develop healthy emotional insights and skills.
Dr. Bren is a licensed clinical psychologist and mom of two whose passion is helping parents find their inner confidence and raise healthy, resilient kids. Dr. Sarah is the host of the podcast Securely Attached and the creator of the parenting courses The Authentic Parent: Finding Your Confidence in Parenthood and the Science of Tantrums. She is the Co-Founder of Upshur Bren Psychology Group in Pelham, NY where she treats parents, children and families.
In this episode, we discuss:
What is Co-Regulation and why is it crucial in the parent child dynamic?
How parents can self-regulate and practice co-regulation with their kids.
If using co-regulation during a tantrum, when it’s appropriate to discipline and teach.
