hi moms! i was just wondering if anyone else takes their 15 month old to the park? if and when you take them how do they interact with other children? have you had problems with other moms pulling their children away?
the reason i ask this is because i am a huge believer in toddler socialization and parks i think it is great to let the little ones run in the open grass and better their agility and mobility skills by climbing on the equipment with supervision. when my husband and i take Emmy we stand by close enough to help her on the equipment but also stay back enough to let her play with other kids. lately i have seen that she really wants to interact with other children, she is a social butterfly! the other children, even if they are close to her age don't want anything to do with her and i dont understand why, she is nice she doesnt push, shove hit really she does not touch the other children unless they offer a hand but she will say hi and try to play. my other concern is when another child does want to play the moms come up and take their child away! what is going on here? any suggestions would be greatly appricated
