my eldest grandchild is 3 and when he is in the garden and neighbors walk past and talk to him he says “ your not allowed in my house. Big bad bug “. You can see he is very wary of everybody. He even tells me if I get to close to the door “not allowed in my house gaga“ (that’s what he calls me. Bless him ) just makes you wonder what it will be like when you can go to their house again. Will he want cuddles or will it be a while before he feels comfortable with it. Time will tell

Personally I have found just the opposite . Although observing social distancing many are sharing smiles and greetings in a sort of "we're all in this together" way .

I'm sure we have all noticed how the clap for carers evenings have brought streets and neighbourhoods together .

I've seen the opposite when out and about. Everybody is interacting far more than ever before.

SusanEaston327 At least people are taking the pandemic seriously where you live, I suppose. They don't give two hoots where we are. We have one of the lowest infection rates in the country, so everyone thinks it ok to carry on regardless.

I don't think it's anti-social but just cautious and about safety more than anything, it's good if kids are picking up that right now they need to keep their distance

SusanEaston327 my new neighbour's kids bounce on their trampoline to see me in the garden. They also talk to me on the front drive if we are all outside. The fear depends on how you have discussed the situation with kids.

As Dennab says, it's a lot different here recently.

The neighbours are interacting a lot more than they used to, but they are not social distancing.

I see a lot of dog walkers going past the gate and I'll say hello when I'm sitting outside, but I'm well away from them.

Dennab I'm waiting until the Welsh government says that I can go for a walk with my dad. He's a pensioner and quite random.

It’s not anti social , I haven’t been out shopping only small walks for last two months and I am actually scared now, it’s not that I meet people with virus , but I am just scared generally. Also having 4 year old who was attending nursery since she was 1 year old and to explain her she cannot go back as it’s closed and she cannot go to the playground , we had to say to her as some people are sick we have to stay at home and parks are closed, so now my daughter when we are out for a walk she does avoid people and also asks if we will be able to meet people again, and it is not we are anti social it is as somehow you have to make your toddler to understand why she cannot go to see her friends and to have fun in playground as well as why she cannot have birthday party she has been waiting for . So please do not judge as there are different circumstances for people and we don’t want to be rude but it’s mentality now and will be for a while

loveglitches well said I have little one same age and when this all started I read the book dotty the doctor all about Coronavirus. And she understands now why we can’t go to shops parks etc because she thinks dotty closed it because of germs. our front door is about 10 metres from a playground whice she was seeing before closed kids playing and saying they not listening to dotty. She told our neighbor he weren’t listening to dotty too. Yes there been some horrible crimes committed just around corner where has been 2 stabbings in a week. That’s what am more scared of

I've actually seen more people being sociable to others, simply more people saying hello, but with people staying a distance but still saying hello and being sociable im all for that as they aint invading my personal space 👍

I havent been out except to take my son for his walks since before the lockdown started. I am not an anti social person, I have spoken to our neighbours over the fence, said hello to people on our walks, but I stay away from people. It is not because I am being anti social, but because I have a toddler with a heart condition and I need to be careful and keep him safe. My son is too young to understand to why he can't run up to his Uncle when he comes to the fence to say hello or why he hasn't seen his Grandparents in 3 months. Social distancing is so important, it isn't anti social, it is about safety. I havent seen the fear from kids, my neighbours children will talk to me when they see us in the garden, they still play outside but they follow the rules. There are plenty of adults who are scared about this pandemic, so why would it be any different for children?
