Questions and Answers (Q&A)

My child does not want to socialize with anyone who comes home; always shies away, what to do to make him more social?

There are two reasons for the child to be shy.

  1. The genes that they receive from their parents
  2. The environment in which they get the opportunity to practice their skills

We as humans take time to speak to any stranger, so is with the child. We as adults try to test the child in front of strangers by asking them various questions like: “Tell aunty what is your name?” “Tell her the rhyme you learnt “etc.

Children definitely don’t like to be tested. Instead we should let the child observe that we are comfortable with the stranger, she is someone whom the child can trust, have fun with etc. Slowly the child will get comfortable and become social.

Children need to be given exposure to learn to play in a group. Lot of times children are all alone at home due to various reasons like both parents are working, child is with the maid all the time, parents do not encourage their child to mingle with other friends etc.

Below are the suggested ways to help your child become social:

  1. Encourage social interaction by taking the child to social places like children’s club or parties
  2. Take the child to the park, send him to play with friends in the society
  3. Invite your child’s friends at home to play with him
  4. Make him independent to take his own decisions

Why there is no writing activity in PG?

Children enter playgroup at the age of 1.5 to 2 years. Children at this age hold the pencil in the Washington monument grasp position (child holds pencil straight up in the air) whereas it has to be in the tripod grasp position (child holds pencil with the support of thumb, index finger and middle finger). The reason for the same is that the finer motor skills of the child are in the developing stage to learn to hold the pencil in the right position.

Below mentioned are the suggested activities at playgroup level:

Playing with peg boards, scribbling with thick crayons, solving puzzles with knobs, paper tearing, crumpling, twisting, lacing beads, sorting etc.

This will enable the child to learn to use the thumb, index finger and middle finger to hold the pencil. Opportunities to practice this skill should be given at home as well as at school. Once the child achieves his milestones, he will be better equipped to write.
