On my preschooler's progress report they mentioned helping to encourage her to make friends. This weekend, she was very excited to have her friends over but once they were here for her party and playing with her stuff, she wanted nothing to do with them (there were 2 kids her age and a 1 yr old) and wanted to be with us. At a birthday party we took her to, she just wanted to play with the toys and not with any of the other kids. At school she's not shy at all and seems to play well with everyone in her class, at least what I can see at pick up. I usually see her with kids playing together or running around with them. Is there anything I can do to help her make friends? Or is this just her being 3 and it'll work itself out. She seems to do better just one on one if we have someone over. I guess I'm wondering if I need to just get her out more, playing with more kids or if this is just who she is (like me).
Agree with namastebiotches, and lildis. At three there's still a lot of playing alongside one another instead of playing together. Being one on one or being at her own place is less overwhelming than in a larger group somewhere else.
You can always ask what they mean by the comment, is she different during the day from what you see at pick up? Friendships at three are a bit much to ask in my opinion, outside of getting along and not being in eachothers hair all the time when they play.
