Ryan + Strangers = No Danger. :-S

So, trying to teach Ryan that he can't go up and talk to just anyone is proving to be difficult. He is such a friendly child. When we got out for meals he is always talking to the people at the tables around us. When we are at the park he starts following kids around until they go to their parents and he starts blabbing talking his little head off to them about things they don't have a clue about. Everyone we see says he's a little chatterbox. Yes, I know, thank you. I just wish he could understand that sometimes people don't want to be bothered. I only hope that once he's older and we try to instill in him that you don't talk to strangers that he understands. It hurts my heart to think that he is just so innocent and friendly, but not everyone out there is like him.

I totally understand your stress with the stranger thing! My kids are way too friendly sometimes. It's such a fine line to keep them safe but not squash that friendliness out of them. I keep telling them again and again and again and again with hopes that one day it will sink in. Let me know if you have any ideas in that area and I'll do the same for you!
