I’m a Carer of my Grandson who’s at kindy. He has behaviour issues & no one seems to play or invite him to play. Know it’s hard to deal with the “I don’t want my child picking up habits from him” attitude, but all kids should be welcomed by all I would think. Can I please get some advice ?

  • It is true, but It depends how “serious ” is the behaviour issues . I remembered when my daughter was in kindy and a boy kept hitting her behind her back . I sprung him one time , stepped forward and said it is not nice to hit people and he was taken aback . If it is such a bad habit , it is best to talk to him so he doesn’t get used to it .

  • Have you tried play dates at your house? Invite his classmates around for a play. Speak to the other mums and get them on board with it. So hard to think he might be missing out

  • It took my daughter a few weeks before she really took to any other kids. They really do it on their own, the other thing you could do is wait for his birthday or something similar to come and involve all the other kids.

  • It’s a hard thing to have to deal with. I see mums everyday trying to remove their kids from other kids and then talking to other parents and from their it just escalates and then your child has been branded. I think it is horrible that parents do this because usually it is for small things. If he is hurting other children I can understand why but it’s not fair as he doesn’t understand. Try and work with the teachers if you can and try and get on the same path when it comes to positive and praise when he is good and consequences if it is something negative like hitting etc. if there is continuity between you’ll you might have some more success. Is there things that your grandson loves doing that suppress his behaviour? Like a sport? Maybe try that also. I know my brother found his friends through footy.

  • Hi, I would suggest talking to the Kinder teachers and getting some suggestions from them. There may be a few little kids that he plays with and maybe you could ask one of them to come to a park after Kinder for a play and go from there x
