CELEBRATING 200 POSTS!! Two posts tied for the #2 spot, here’s one of them! I’m so glad it made it because I LOVE writing pieces that are psycho-educational.
Alright guys, put on your nerd glasses for this one I’m getting into some Psych stuff today. Over the last week or so, I’ve heard a few Mamas talk about “stranger danger.” Their babies are still very young (4-9 mos) so I will clarify that the technical term we’re talking about here is “separation anxiety.” “Stranger Danger” is regarding school aged children who are learning to avoid scary situations with bad people. I’m not trying to be a smarty pants here but it’s important that I make this differentiation because when infants display this behavior it isn’t because they are afraid of the “stranger” it’s because they dislike the separation from their primary caregiver.
