My daughter is 8 months old. She stays at home with my husband and I all day (we work from home). While we do get out (we have a daily walk), she probably sees non-family-members once a week and other children once or twice a month.
We're always getting comments from friends/family that we should be getting her out to meet people more, and she should be playing with other children more often too. Is this really an issue? At what age should she be playing regularly with other children on a daily basis?
In the future I'll be looking at playgroups/childcare for her. What age will these things be a necessity? (to clarify, the childcare wouldn't really be for our convenience, but rather for her social needs. We can keep her here at home without any issue)
