You may find that your child becomes quite clingy.
To a child, the world is a prominent scary place without their parents close by, so separation anxiety is normal. In fact, it’s normal for them to be a little clingy still even when introduced to strangers later on in life. After all, parents are the first protectors and the first teachers, the ones they have spent most of their time with since the day they were born. Parents are the most important people in their little world. Over time, children can become more relaxed around family members and friends that they see regularly.
It starts to become a real problem when the anxiety they experience prevents them from sleeping, eating, or even playing. Suppose it affects their daily lives and their ability to socialize with peers. If your bashful child tends to retract in social settings, there are a couple of ways to put them at ease. When you notice your kid hiding behind you during these times, get down to their level and talk to them in a soothing voice to reassure them that everything is fine and nothing terrible will happen to them. Your calm demeanor will help them keep calm and carry on.
