my daughter is 9 years. As she is growing up she finds things of her interest. Wherever we go she asks questions ..where we are going , why we are going ..and if the place is not of her interest she refuses to come with us ..She says what should I do over there.. and so on.. We have to take her with us as we are nuclear family ..I not at all like these questions she asks.. its not always that we should go the place which she likes... How I understand her this ?education Corner
Yes she is developing her identity. Do not take it personally when she argues or ask questions. She wants to know. Hence you will have to be patient and give her the answers. At her age she will not like to socialise and visit people. It is normal. Yet you cannot leave her alone. Hence you will have to talk it out to her. Explain your purpose of visit and also why you cannot leave her alone. She will sulk and be unhappy because such visits are meaningless for her. Maybe she could take her favourite book to read along. It is better than listening to adult conversations. Also see if you can have your maid, baby-sit her occasionally for a small fee. This way you need not pull her along everywhere. It is of course not wise to leave her alone unsupervised.
