How Does Your Child Become More Aware Of Her Surrounding?
Though appearing distracted and fleeting, your child is constantly inspecting and making herself aware of the surroundings and situations that she is placed in, which help her feel more comfortable when introduced into a relatively strange place and to new people. Here is how your child becomes aware of her surroundings:
1. Often, your child’s initial response to a new environment will always be a feeling of hesitation and feeling out of place. To your child, who is accustomed to spending most of their time playing and learning with you as parents, going to a new place with new people will naturally cause her to be less interactive and withdrawn until they inspect and are comfortable that she is safe in the new environment that she has been put in.
2. After this initial period of lull, your child will start to go about and inspect physically, the place that she is now in, seeing the new objects, colors and people that are in there and attempting to contact the people that are present in there. Let your child take her own time in doing so, as each child’s mind is unique and operates in a way that is special only to them.
3. Once they are familiar with the place and the people, your child will begin to play and interact with the people freely, having been reassured that all is good in this new environment that they are now in, having a fun time and making new friends.
4. Keep in mind that your child will develop this trend of getting independently accustomed into the places and with the people that they will often meet over their day to day lives over some length of time. These are things that your child must figure out for themselves and you as parents can suggest them ways in which they can do so.
