My daughter is now 2 and half years old. She loves to play outside and would kill a butterfly to play with other kids.
The problem is the only other kids to play with around us are the kids next door.
No problem right just let her go play.
But there is a problem. A big one I am finding hard to over come.
I don't know how.
I don't know how to just sent her off to someone else's yard to play. Even though we have lived next to these people for over 6 months now. I don't know them. They never talk to us or even do that friendly wave thing people are suppose to do.
One day I did let her go play. Being that my daughter is the only child she isn't that good at sharing. So I felt bad we she starting taking the toys from the other kids.
Another thing is I don't know how to talk to these people. I'm kinda shy when it comes to talking to people who have never tried to talk to me. And a big problem is they won't speak English when I'm around. Makes it kinda hard to start a convocation.
At the park I can do it, because it's like ok kids are playing I can set on my bench and just watch. But when it's next to my house I never know if I should stand in their yard or go back and set in mine.
Why is this so hard for me. It would be easier if she was older, I think, maybe not.
This is going to be a long summer.
Do y'all have any advise on this topic?
How should I go about this?
