Danish term or phrase: Omstemme
Here is the context:

Inden for udviklingspsykologien bruges begreberne at afstemme og at omstemme til at beskrive dele af det følelsesmæssige samspil, der foregår mellem det lille barn og dets omsorgsgiver.

At afstemme vil sige, at eksempelvis moderen er i stand til at aflæse barnets sindsstemning og derudfra møde det med en passende følelsesmæssig afstemning. Det kan f.eks. være ved at udtrykke samme begejstring, glæde eller frustration som barnet udviser. At omstemme vil ligeledes sige, at moderen kan aflæse barnet og møde det hvor det er, men herefter gør hun noget, som kan hjælpe barnet videre til en ny sinds-tilstand og en anden måde at have det på.


I successfully determined that "afstemme" refers to "attunement", but try as I might I could not find anything conclusive for "omstemme".... Any help would be much appreciated.

that took some out-of-the-box thinking and some fancy-footwork sleuthing

in essence, toddlers are not made to change their minds or brought about to another opinion in their early stages of infancy as their mind frames are still too fleeting (their minds tend to wander very fast)

much rather, what is sought is to induce them to change their behavio(u)r, ideally on a permanent basis (behavio(ur)ral reprogramming / modification techniques)

there is an interesting additional source on infant behavio(u)ral reprogramming / modification techniques:
