Is it normal to feel hurt when your four year old daughter is left out in activities at parks where kids play? She isn`t left out all the time, but when she is, it hurts me. Does it hurt her, too? She`s an only child at the moment.

Helping the Left Out Child

Some children do not appear to be upset when they are left out of a group at play, but they may lack the skills they need to join in. You can teach your child ways to introduce herself and ask to play. It is usually best to role play many scenarios, teaching her the appropriate words and body language to use as needed. It can be fun to role play with stuffed animals and dolls as well! Having one or two friends over to your house to play with your child will also help to build her confidence enough to join in later with a larger group.
