We are wondering what to do about this. Should we put her in the arms of our friends regardless of her response so she doesn't grow up to be shy and clingy whenever friends approach? Should we hold her and ask our friends to allow her to warm up to them in her own time?
Also, I recall reading that children whose fathers are very involved in their lives do better with stranger/friends than those whose fathers are not as involved. My husband works out of town 5 days per week but is very involved on the weekends. Do you think this might be contributing or have a negative impact on her now or later?
Thanks so much - we'll be so grateful for any advice or suggestions.
