Concerns about your Anti-social Child

Some babies are difficult to please. It is important that parents of babies like this do whatever it takes to make the baby respond and interact with them.

I think my baby is anti-social

Some babies are difficult to please. They do not laugh or smile, do not like being cuddled or playing games. At the same time, they cry when they are left alone. They are slow and difficult feeders. When they are tired, they fret and do not sleep. Nothing can make them happy.

How should I deal with my anti-social child?

It is important that parents of babies like this do whatever it takes to make the baby respond and interact with them. Else, the baby will grow up to be a sombre and taciturn individual. Here are some things that you can do to deal with your anti-social child.

Do not push her

Your baby is not comfortable being with people around or is not comfortable with mingling with others. The main reason behind this is that she is not surrounded by too many people around her and she has now totally got used to being only with you. Giving-up her anti-social behaviour will not be easier for her. So, give her some time and space and do not push her if she cries when you hand her to other people. Follow a step-by-step procedure in order to help her give-up her anti-social nature.

Take Help of Your Parents or In-Laws

If your in-laws or your parents are free, ask them to come over and stay with you. If that is not possible, you can go to your in-laws or parents and stay with them for some time. Let your baby mingle with them.

Allow some bonding time for grandparents and grandchild. Let your child spend a lot of time playing with her grandparents. Massaging and bathing her can also be a good way for grandparents to bond with their grandchild.

Once your baby starts bonding with her grandparents, allow both of them some free time. This will be the perfect time for you to go out on a date with your husband. When your in-laws or your parents are with your baby, you can go out without carrying any worries with you. You can meet your friends or you can go to a beauty parlour or just go shopping. It is also a good way to prevent separation anxiety in your child and grandparents can be the good caretakers of your child.

Call Neighbours Over

 Calling the neighbours over can also help your child to get acquainted with them. If your neighbours have children, it can be a great thing. Their children can play with your child while you sip a cup of coffee with your neighbours. If your baby spends some time in a day having people and children around her along with you, she can get rid of anti-social behaviour. But make sure that you do not leave your baby alone. 

Go On Play Dates

Nowadays, it is not so difficult to know about the moms who live nearby. You can find about the moms like you who live in your area and go for play dates with them.  This can be a good way to prevent anti-social behaviour in your child. Play dates are the best way to boost the social skills in your child.

Join Mom and Baby Classes

Joining mom and baby classes can provide you and your baby with a good opportunity to mingle with moms like you. You can carry out a lot of activities together that can help to develop social skills in your baby and promote her overall growth and development.

Keep talking to your baby and ask her to say ‘Hi’ to whomever drops-in to boost her social skills and you will see her respond to them very soon. Although, encouraging your baby to interact with everyone is a great way to boost her social skill, never ever leave her alone with strangers or people whom you do not trust.

my grandson is nearly 11 months old and since hes been born ,i especially have noticed hes got a very strong character ,i told my daughter to get him on a good early routine,but no she didnt listen ,me and his grandad took him out last week he was fine in the car,once we hit the shop that was it,scream scream was so bad we had to come out nothing would stop him,put him in the car he was fine .took him in another shop same happened again.he wont look at people if hes tired he wont got asleep till hes in your arms,ive looked after my own 2 children ,and at least another 10 on very regular basis ,but our grandson,hes got everyone where he wants ,i definatly think it comes from either a underconfident mother or being left to his own devices much to much for an easier life,but hes a nightmare to take anywhere if people visit he wont shush down ,or anything till the visitors go,so now my daughter is definatly having the benifits of taking no advice or routine for him,but like she says she does have to learn her way ,now everywhere she goes people watch in disbelief how now nothing calms him down,ive booked them both in to go play group later this week, and a single mothers club,he carnt take over completly and now shes thinking a bit harder,wish us all good luck ,karen

my 7 month old has been anti-social from the very beginning. he's a wonderful, happy, well-behaved baby, but when he's around other babies it seems that all he does is fuss. he can't stand the loud sounds and squeals they make. their noises just upset him. he does, however, seem to like older kids. this worries me and so far, i have just tried to make him suffer through it in hopes he will adapt. i'm sure he will grow out of it. but there sure are days when i wish he was more easy-going like other babies his age.
