My 4 year old daughter is very social. We have alot of gatherings and do many social events which is why its difficult trying to teach her about stranger danger and not to speak with strangers. She has gone up to people that we are speaking with and hugs them and easyily starts up conversations with anyone in the grocery store. I don't want to scare her to where she isn't social at all but it scares me in today's world knowing that could hurt her too. We have gone over numerous times stranger danger and not to speak with strangers but she continues to do that. I only know that she does that with us around and I would think she wouldn't speak with them or go with strangers if we were not around but I don't know that 100%. Any suggestions on how to talk or teach her better on strangers?
