Have a friend who has 3yr old boy, very bright etc and very serious! Teacher thinks he needs to socialise and play.Any ideas?
You can lead a horse to water ...
Has he got toys that he is interested in? Perhaps lego/duplo? Toys can be really hit and miss and it is sometimes really hard to tell what might appeal to a child.Have some friends round from nursery?
I agree with Spidamama.DS1 was like this. The most excited he got at the age of 3 was cheering at completing a workbook. He is now 11 and socialises well,but it's been a long hard road. The day he attended the Y6 leavers disco was MASSIVE for me. Just encouraging him (but not forcing him!)to do the usual age appropriate activities is the way to go, IMO.
Are there any fun activity classes he might like? Drama, football, art, music?
Sit on the floor with him and teach him to 'jump' cars over brickss
Are you silly yourself? (serious question btw!)Mess around, do silly voices, make silly faces, play silly games and have lots of fun yourself. If he laughs and/or joins in, great. If not, just let him be his serious little self! It's not a crime.
