I was hoping I could get some advice from all of the mommies who are experienced with the 3's. Lately every time I try take my 3 year old son to his playgroup (or any of the other few things in our small town, Library, Gymboree, etc.) he does not want to go, and when I take him against his will, he will then cry to go home for the entirety of the session. He will object when I announce that "today is Playgroup day" or etc. When we're at home, he doesn't want to play either, he just wanders around whining, or lying about on the floor as if he is bored. I try to play with him, or make up games, take him on outings, art, play doh, bike riding, planting flowers, etc. etc. etc. the list goes on and on but he's just not happy. He acts as if (to me) he wants someone to play with, but will not play with other children when I take him to the places where other children are. He does enjoy playing with other boys, but ones who are several years older than he is, so that he can speak to them, and of course they will be in school all day. Most of the children in the playgroup and other activities he goes to are younger or around the same age as he is, but do not speak as well. I am pretty much at the end of my ability to sit around the house alone all day, every day, going several days at a time without speaking to another adult or person other than a 3 year old. If you have any advice for me, that would be great. Thanks in advance.
