Does this video help you better understand how to engage your child once (s)he is sharing attention and regulated? Do you feel a bit more empowered about how to first co-regulate with your child to reach a state of shared attention and regulation and then get the “gleam in the eye” to begin relating? Do you have an example of how any of these strategies have worked for you or do you have other strategies? If so, please share them with us below in the Comments section.
