dd loves babies and older children. She plays happily with a variety of ages
Sent from my GT-I9100T using BubHub
My lone child likes smaller children. She likes to somewhat mother them. She's 7.5.
Mikayla's only 18 months, but loves playing with older kids. She also is very good with little babies, but isn't great with kids her own age or size. Bigger or smaller is good, but same as her and I think they become competition or something.
My 3 year old plays great with everyone, but I think he prefers playing with big kids
Yes! My 2.5 year old DD prefers them to kids her age or thereabouts!
Not sure if it's quite the same but I've noticed with DD1 (who is 7) that her friends who don't have younger sublings are generally completely disinterested in letting my nearly 4 year old join in on their games when she has them over. But those friends with younger siblings are much kinder to DD2.
TBH I think kids around 7 or above can find 2 - 4 year olds draining (I know I do!) so I find DD1 definitely prefers the company of older children, whereas DD2 finds them too complicated for her and likes kids her own age.
