I'm socially closed off. My 2 year old son isn't and I feel he's suffering for it. What do I do?

I'm kinda shy at times but I really lock up in social situations. How do I meet other mom's who just want to be friends? Not only does my son need someone to play with....So do I.

  • I am the same way! We recently became members at our church and I am just forcing myself to get more involved with other mom's of kids my daughters age. I am volunteering for the nursery and 2's and 3's class. It's a great way to meet other mom's and form playdates, etc. Just an idea....it really worked well for me.

  • Maybe take him to some place like a Baby Gym or something if you can afford it.

  • Have you looked here on cafemom to see if there is a playgroup in your area? If you are shy you can get to know the moms online before you meet them in person.

  • I deal with the same issues. I am very shy and my 2 yr old son is a very difficult child and most people do not want to deal with it. My 4 yr old suffers because most parents don't want their children around my son. I enrolled my 4 yr old in dance class finally and she loves it and at least she can socialize with kids her own age an hour a week.
