Is your child getting enough socializing? Do you do play dates, or toddler gym classes that are available?

No. DD is at daycare for 9 hours a day. I figure that is enough socialization. The local toddler gym classes and toddler hours at the children's discovery center are all at 10 am and 2 pm on weekdays, so we can't ever go because I'm at work and she's at daycare.

The whole socialization issue was why I started DS (now 5) in preschool at age 3. He attended playgroups but you could never count on who would show up so I put him in a 3 mornings a week preschool and it was the best thing I ever did. I loved that he saw the same kids each time and he learned to listen to another adult who wasn't "mom", "dad" or "Grandma." With DD, I had her in a music class last fall but right now she is not in any classes (due to a health issue) and I do think she could use more socialization than just playing with her brother. Our playgroup meets rarely and will dissolve when summer hits and won't reform in the fall which is why she will enter the same preschool and attend 3 hours a day for 3 days a week.
