Anyone else experienced this? I'm hoping its just a phase.
Recently in any group situation he starts saying no no no and seems distressed etc. especially when people start singing songs. It's not every single time, but it more likely than not and doesn't seem to be related to tiredness or hunger.(also apparently he doesn't do it with the childminder)
At home he likes singing and dancing but in a group situation it just seems to distress him. It's almost like he is trying to control everything and wants everyone to stop singing.
I'm not sure whether to continue taking him to these sort of sessions (god way to get out the house!) or to just avoid and try again in a month or so.
My son was the same at that age-just stop and do the things he enjoys. Ds is 4.5 now and very sociable, he still gets a little clingy in some big group situations eg.playing games at parties but I just let him sit and watch. No fuss, no big deal.
