You can arrange to have regular play dates with the same children once or twice every week. You can also be your child’s play date. Besides the advantage of quality time spent and stronger bonding that you develop with her, you can also get to know how she plays, where she struggles and when it’s easy for her. For instance, she may have an opinion to express but hesitates, or she wants to lead but ends up following. Through words of motivation, she can overcome these challenges.

At times, just watch TV shows like Tom and Jerry or Chota Bheem with her. It may not delight you, but it can provide great bonding time. You can also call your friends over. Seeing you having a friend, she may model the same behaviour. She may like to have friends.
