Hi ,I am looking for some advice I have a 3 year old boy and we are very close we spend most of our days together as I do not know anyone in my area with young children for him to play with .I have signed him up for swim lessons as well as playball and also a play group .My Problem is that I have to be right with him in order for him to play if I leave to sit across the room with the other parents he crys and runs to me.What should I do and will this stage pass if that is what it is.

You can try bringing him back over and just reassuring him that you're just right over here. Tell him he can still see you and that he should go play and have fun with his friends.

I'm sure eventually he'll stop. He's just used to being with you all the time.
