Based on your responses, you may have significant concerns about your child’s abilities in the Socializing domain. Socializing is a term referring to your child’s ability to interact with others, to communicate socially, and to make friends. This interaction can include being around other children, playing together, having conversations and achieving a level of closeness that is appropriate for his or her developmental level. By grade school, we should see children playing reciprocally. They are engaging in games like tag, kickball, and Marco/Polo that have rules and winners and losers. Children are expected to take turns and to be a good sport. It is remarkable when some children are oblivious to these social rules. They may only see it from their perspective; therefore, losing, playing another person’s game, or letting someone else go first may be intolerable. Perhaps your child stalks off the playground anytime the kids won’t play Harry Potter. He’d rather sit alone on the bench and count butterflies than play a game of tag. When he plays pretend, he may always have to be a certain character and cannot seem to understand why it might be good to give someone else a turn. Conversely, your child may be sweet and oblivious and constantly taken advantage of by other children. Your child may never get a turn and may allow others to take the lead and have all the control. Either of these situations indicates that your child is not engaging in reciprocal play.
