DS made friends with our neighbors little boy today. He has always been so shy and hesitant to play with other kids unless he's in a social setting. Even then he's shy. But, he walked right up to this kid and started a conversation. Yay! I guess at least he is learning something valuable in kindergarten.
Anyways, the neighbor kid is in 1st grade and his Dad just has left him outside for hours today without even checking in on him. I have been out there about a zillion times. Keep checking out the window. And was sitting out there a good hour. I feel like I'm hovering almost to much.
Where do you find a good balance for playing and supervision?
