3 1/2 years old lack social skills with adults
Hi Dear parents!
I have a 3 1/2 years old boy and a 2 years old daughter. My son is a quiet, happy and independent kid at home since he is born . He never had hard time going to daycare. He sleeps all night although he is a picky eater. He plays well with other kids and talks about everything at home.
However, we are noticing that he has hard time interacting with other adults, he talks like a baby to adults and makes silly moves toward them. He seems very shy and also he does not care or understand the social cues of adult world. and this has happened MANY times over the past years, like every single weekends! We have been told few times by extended family that we should consult professionals about him but honestly he is very good at home, plays well, listens well until we take him out he becomes someone else!
Also, he has no interest in learning alphabets or numbers. He just wants to play with toys but he loves it when we read books to him! Not sure if we should be worried abut this.
I am all confused and don't know what to do. We have spoken to daycare educators and they say he is good and not delayed but I started to wonder that this pattern of him being so uncomfortable and easily overwhelmed in public could be alarming. My only concern is how I can comfort him and help him to improve his interactions with other adults. Should I take him to a child psychologist? I am not into comparing kids with each other but honestly, I have never seen this behavior in any other kids, including his sister , cousin and friends. He is highly sensitive and I am not really into disciplining the kids so much. Should we take him out more and educate him about how he should behave? should we just understand him and keep him out pf those situations?
What do u suggest? What would u do if you had a kid with the same condition?
