ABSTRACT
The article discusses a common problem of parents related to their child often playing alone at the end of the day. This is a common concern for parents, and an opportunity to work with their child's teacher. Now is the time to drop the teacher a note to request a meeting. Parents should keep their approach positive. Parents and teachers should always think that they are both partners working for the child. Children learn friendship skills through observation and imitation. Home is the first place where child learns how to communicate and interact with others. The classroom for some is too different to be comfortable. The teacher's role is to know when to intervene and when to observe and allow them to problem solve independently. Strategies such as pairing child with another child, setting up table games and activities, and acting as a participant in the children's activities will help.
