I have an almost 2 year old girl. I also watch a 1 year old little girl. My daughter does NOT want to play, interact, or really even be near the 1 year old. She is constantly telling her "No!" or "Don't touch!" They have very different personalities. My daughter has never been a snuggler. She's always on the go and wants to do everything herself. The 1 year old is the complete opposite. She wants to be hugged and held and played with constantly and LOVES other kids. My daughter is constantly screaming because the other won't leave her alone. I don't know what to do. I try to keep them at peace, but it is wearing on my nerves to hear constant conflict. I try to get my daughter to play more, but also for the other girl to learn to keep a distance sometimes. Am I doing this right? My daughter is not only like this with THIS particular child. She doesn't seem to want to play with other kids at all. She doesn't willingly. Is this something I should be concerned about?
