Podcast: Try Using The Parallel Energy Hack With Teens

June 7, 2022

We are coining the term "parallel energy" to denote how we talk to our kids and teens. Similar to co-regulation, we want to be on the same "page" but we also want to bring a calm parallel energy. Dr. Cory explains more in this episode.

Think of it this way, if you were at a bar, and someone came up next to you and started talking, it would feel a lot less threatening and nerve-wracking than if someone started directly approaching you face on.

This is how parallel energy works with our teens. If we can set the stage for chatting in a calm, relaxed way, still providing them their own space, we can bring a matching energy to the interaction.
