I know who the people who take care of me are, and now that I’m starting to understand that people and things can go away, I might act really scared of people that are new and unfamiliar. You can help me by giving me time to get to know new people while you are still within my sight, that you give me lots of smiles and praise for getting to know new people and providing me comfort if I get overwhelmed. It might take me a while to warm up to strangers, and the more patient you are with me, the better I’ll adapt to new people and situations in the future.
