Age regression occurs when someone reverts to a childlike state of mind, often as a coping mechanism due to trauma, depression, anxiety, or other mental health issues.

Age regression is also often done voluntarily for fun, and it can also be done as a stress reliever.

Some age regressors like to use child-like objects such as bottles and pacifiers, as well as enjoy partaking in activities such as drawing and playing with children’s toys. Those that age regress slip into a mindset known as littlespace.

Age regression can be experienced by both singlets and systems, and is not exclusive to any specific age range.
