Help Your Child Interact With Other Kids To Get Comfortable
Meeting and getting acquainted with strangers is always an uncomfortable experience the first time around for your little one, as they are only used to the company of you and whoever else was in the house as he was growing up. Here are some ways that you can help your child with meeting and getting acquainted with new people easily:
1. Allow your child to become comfortable with the presence of the new person. Keep in mind that your child is seeing this person for the first time and he will take his own time and his own way in getting familiar with this strange person who is now in contact with him.
2. Do not try to impose this new person on to your little one. Trying to force your child to get to know some one is no more constructive as bringing a horse to a pond and forcing it to drink the water when it doesn’t want to! Allow your child to exercise and satisfy his curiosity of this new person in the order that is arises to him.
3. Interact with the person with the intention to show that the person is nice and friendly and that he to can try to get to know him. Your child trusts your judgement and often, follows your lead in all affairs of life and you showing him that the person is a nice person and that you can trust and enjoy interacting with them will further encourage your child to take a step to know the person better.
4. Keep in mind that this sequence of events may not happen in the same fashion with every child and with every person that your little one will interact with. Remember that your child ought to be given the choice of people who he wishes to interact with, while at the same time encouraging him to meet and try to interact with new people on a regular basis.
