Pedi's are so confusing...

 I took my son to his pedi this morning and he said my son isn't very social.. My son is a social butterfly. He said he wants me to get him into daycare. Ok first of all I myself am a nanny and i am with multiple different children at all times.. and most of them are my sons age so I take him with me, and I always have.. He has plenty of little friends, and he's very social.. I told his pedi that but he seems to think I'm lying. Am I wrong for thinking that my son is perfectly fine? Or should I take the pedi's advice?

Just remember they see your kid maybe 20 mins whenever you do checkups or take you kid in. You know your kids social skills beter than they do. Go with your gut.

I firmly believe Pediatricians dont need to mentally evaluate our children.

Go with your gut.  You now your child better than anyone. If you are a nanny, and your son is being socilized, then I wouldn't worry about it.

Do as you feel right. If you feel he is getting enough interaction dont worry about what the pedi said

My mom always told my sisters and I "Whos the parent? Whos with them all day? Who knows your kid better? Go with your gut." I always think of that.

My sons pedi said that because my son was behind in speech. It helped him.


Did you tell the pedi he is around other kids? If not that's probably why he said it.

I'm sure your son is fine. How old is he and how did you see a doctor on Sunday?
