: Thankyou Linda for your advice, the little girl is 4 years old. The 2 children I look after are my niece
: and nephew, so if they ask I will explain, and if they
: don't we will just let it be. They are excited about playing with her, and we will be taking pictures for our scrapbook which we do every month. Her mother told
: me that she is not that fond of playing with others,
: just likes to be read to. As I look after my niece and nephew all day, and the little girl for only 3 hours I want to spend the 3 hours just one on one with
: her as I can find something to occupy my niece and nephew. Is this a good idea, or should I try to include her in the play, I don't want to force anything
: Any suggestions greatly appreciated.

I would try to get her to play with others. Soon she will be going to school where she will have to be part of a group. I wouldnt force her but, I have found that if you leave kids alone in a room they will start interacting with each other. My kids seem to play more when I wasnt watching them. They start using their imagination and start talking to each other. It's just a suggestion, but maybe this will work. Good Luck....
