WHEN SHE IS SCARED OF STRANGERS

Your Baby & Toddler - - Toddler -

✓ Don’t feel em­bar­rassed when your child is sud­denly afraid of new peo­ple. At seven months old ba­bies can be­come a bit anx­ious when they sud­denly end up in the com­pany of some­one new.

✓ If she cries when you place her in the arms of some­one new, rather take her. Con­sole her in your arms while the other per­son is there. Let the other per­son speak to her and play with her while you hold her. Try and give her to the per­son again for a short while, while you are there.

✓ Try to leave the room for a short while and see how it goes. If she kicks up a fuss, rather take her and con­sole her. Try again another time.
