My 3 year old is very social and friendly. She wants to make friends everywhere we go - the park, the pool....etc. Lately she has experienced a few instances where other kids aren't interested. Sometimes they are older or already playing in a group. How can I help her understand that not everyone want to be friends and also not to keep following or trying when a kid isn't interested. She isn't so interested in adults luckily and I always intervene with "stranger" words when she approaches any adult. I don't want to dampen her natural friendliness.
