Social and Emotional Learning-Summer Edition

Social and Emotional Learning:


Types of Emotional Regulation


There are two types of emotional regulation:

  • Mutual Regulation (co-regulation) means your child needs you to help them regulate their emotions. When they’re upset, you need to soothe them, help them calm down. They are notable to access healthy coping skills and strategies on their own in that moment

  • Self Regulation- being able to calm down and cope with their emotions all on their own. Being able to walk away from a frustrating situation. Can take a deep breath and calm down. Has access to personal coping skills that help regulate and self soothe.


As parents, it is important to be aware of what your needs are, so that you can be available to the needs of your child. Both types of emotional regulation apply to children and adults. Practicing healthy self regulation and coping skills in front of your children sets an example for them in how to take care of themselves when they are feeling overwhelmed by their feelings.

It is also important for them to see you reaching out for support when you are needing co-regulation. This can be found in your partner, friend, parent etc. This practice does not happen overnight, but small steps towards modeling this behavior for your children can give them a wonderful road map for when they are needing help regulating their own emotions.


Aprendizaje Social y Emocional:

Tipos de regulación emocional

Hay dos tipos de regulación emocional:

  • Regulación mutua (corregulación) significa que su hijo necesita que usted le ayude a regular sus emociones. Cuando están molestos, usted necesita calmarlos, ayudarlos a calmarse. Son notables para acceder a habilidades y estrategias de afrontamiento saludables por sí mismos en ese momento
  • Autorregulación: ser capaz de calmarse y hacer frente a sus emociones por sí mismo. Ser capaz de alejarse de una situación frustrante. Puede respirar profundamente y calmarse. Tiene acceso a habilidades personales de afrontamiento que le ayudan a regularse y a tranquilizarse.


Como padres, es importante ser conscientes de cuáles son sus necesidades, para poder estar disponibles para las necesidades de su hijo. Ambos tipos de regulación emocional se aplican a niños y adultos. Practicar una autorregulación saludable y habilidades de afrontamiento frente a sus hijos les da el ejemplo de cómo cuidarse a sí mismos cuando se sienten abrumados por sus sentimientos.


También es importante para ellos ver que usted busca apoyo cuando necesita corregulación. Esto se puede encontrar en su pareja, amigo, padre, etc. Esta práctica no ocurre de la noche a la mañana, pero pequeños pasos hacia el modelado de este comportamiento para sus hijos pueden darles una maravillosa hoja de ruta para cuando necesiten ayuda para regular sus propias emociones.
