My 2 yr old DD is constantly being left alone, by both me and her sisters. I leave her not because I don't want to be with her, but because she always seems like she enjoys being alone. and why her sisters leave her alone I honestly can't say! should I be leaving her be, or should I be playing with her? please help!
If she's happy alone there's no need to step in. My 2yo is very independent and mostly plays alone - makes up voices for all of her toys, like reaaaallly gets into it! My being there, sometimes puts a damper on the play and so I like to just stand back and watch her. When she wants me she lets me know. She was super needy in the beginning so this is a welcome break for me, but not all that surprising since I too was an independent kid and still do like my alone time!
Some articles by Janet Lansbury will confirm you're on the right track!! http://www.janetlansbury.com/category/parenting/parenting-play/
So what if I don't fit cleanly into a defined parenting style, my kids don't fit into a personality archetype either!
I dont think your doing anything wrong. My daughter is pretty independent has been since she was a few months old, now she barley ever wants to be held or cuddled unless were reading or shes sick. She did like when I would get on the floor and play with her before she learned how to walk but thats about it, anything else she wanted to do on her own.
