So...haha. I know It sounds mean, but I've noticed that my 2.5 year old DS can be "annoying" to other kids. He's really sweet and means well but constantly wants to play with other kids when they are around. For example, at the sandbox at the park other day, a little girl was making a sand castle and he kept trying to help. She said she didn't want him and he didn't get it at all! He kept trying and trying, and then finally ended up crying. Today we went to the pool and he wanted to play with this little and he splashed him. The boy got mad and hit him. I told him that the boy didn't like to splash so don't splash him. He stopped, but then came back a few mins later and did it again. And we basically repboy eated the thing over and over again (even with timeouts each time). He always wants kids to do things WITH him. Any suggestions? It makes me almost sad for him :(Answer Question

He's honing his social skills. It's great that he is not ultra shy and wants to play. He just needs a little time to learn to ask them if they want to play together and if they say no, he will eventually learn to accept that and move on to another child.
