I also just read thatvuour daughter is home during the week all day with your parents.. that means she's not getting any peer interaction and is seeking out a lot at the playground especialy if its one of her only opportunities to be social! My son would be going crazy if he were with my parents all week! Have your parents drop her off twice a week to some sort of half day preschool.. you will notice a huge difference!!! Best of luck.. sure it will work out!
It's responses like this that get me so confused.
It's a playground, a public space.
Why shouldn't children interact with one another in a public space? Why shouldn't it be a great place to "seek" social interaction? I'm so confused. Please explain this to me.
Maybe it's different in different areas, but here about 3/4 of parents have play structures in their backyards. And there are private play groups as well. It seems logical to me that a public playground would be the space where children go to gather. That's what we did when I was young. You're a kid? Go to the neighborhood park. Make some friends. Have fun. Be back by dark. And I'm not even that old. Now it seems like the majority of kids expect a private play experience at even public playgrounds. What gives?
