My dd is 3.5 and has NO FEAR of anything or anybody. Our "bug guy" came to spray our house a few days ago. And my dd went up and gave him the biggest hug.
I have talked to her about strangers and how we dont hug them. ugg.
She doesent seem to get it. Has anyone ever had their child be too friendly?

My 6 yr old used to do this all of the time! She does it now but not as much. We could be at the mall and she would just walk up to someone in the store and hug them. It really used to upset me because you never know who is out there and they may or may not be pervs!
The baby (she's 14months) will beg complete strangers for food. If she sees someone eating something she will stick her hand out and say "me me" or "mine".

My youngest son has Down syndrome and is very much into army stuff. He is 6 years old. A few months ago we were in the grocery store and we saw a couple of guys in the military fatigues. Quick as lightening, he ran to them and hugged one of them. When I reached them the guy was hugging him back. I apologized. He had a tear in his eye when he said no apology necessary ma'am. Then we both had tears in our eyes. Sometimes unfettered affection for a stranger is a good thing.
