Just wondering how long your children will play alone and what they like to do. My son wants to have us by his side all the time!!

my son is fine and will do his own thing as long as he knows mama is close by but if i go down the hall to the restroom then he whines but i just yell for him and he come crawling down the hall and knocks on the door.... usely i go with the door open ( its only my husband, son and i ) so when he comes to the door he comes in and will play with himself in the mirror.....



any time you leave the room talk to him/her....that way they know you are there even tho they can't see you....

Quoting Jessie:



My daughter does ok by herself for a decent amount of time as long as she doesn't notice that i'm doing something else!  If she sees me walk away or hears me she will scream for a min or so then realize I'm busy nad go back to what she was doing!





Im with you Jessie on that....my daughter is the exact same way. For the most part though she is content playing by herself.....

If I'm in the room with him, he'll content himself playing alone for ages. However, should I leave, or start a task that catches his attention (which is ANY task...), he will drop what he's doing and demand attention immediately!

Hi there, my little girl has an older sister to play with so its a little different for me me but if everyone has left the room my 9mth old calls out to us almost straight away. Though sometimes she is so engaged in the toy she is playing with she wont notice us leaving for about 10 mins or so. Also my oldest loves to sing and dance along with hi-5 and that keeps my youngest happy. Good luck.
