Recently, I am happy to notice that my daughter began to pay attention to her own kind. This change immediately catches the eye, as I used to be the only object for games.
Now, on arrival at the playground, my daughter studies the situation: is there a worthy candidate? Yes, yes, not everyone will still fit her into the role of a friend! The selection goes according to her well-known scheme.
How does dating begin?
If a suitable toddler is present, the daughter begins to get acquainted. Familiarity is very different from the generally accepted, adult concepts. I even envy a little of this in my plan.
Here’s what it looks like. She watches the child, then begins to actively smile, and in the end she walks after the baby and repeats his actions: the little tot carries a typewriter – and my daughter too. The toddler runs – and mine too!
I do not cease to be surprised. After all, an adult to meet with the person you like is a whole problem. Hundreds of books are written to solve it. And, looking at children, you can understand: there is nothing terrible. You just have to come up and say hello! Where does this knowledge go with time?
Not only love does not need words.
It is usually said that words are not necessary to express love. The same thing I can say about the child’s friend. My daughter still speak very few words, and if she speaks, almost no one understands her.
So, it does not prevent her from communicating at all. With her gestures she shows what she wants from a new friend. She stretched her hand to the toy – it means, be kind to give. Put your finger forward – it means, be kind to go in the indicated direction! Particularly slow-witted daughter can push.
How are the kids friends?
To my great surprise, I discovered that children can do a lot of things together: run, jump, walk on the curb, push each other a ball, play cuckoo, roll cars, strollers. You can list for a very long time!
The main thing – I am very pleased that I finally got the desire to interact with other children from my daughter! Probably, now and in the garden you can give!
And how do your children love to play with others or prefer to spend time with you?
