Playing tag with Naomi at Az's second birthday party. He found a few other boys to join in on the chase. Chasing games have become one of Z's main ways of interacting with new kids. It's been a tool he's been eager to take out of his pocket for many years but up until now he has had trouble with not being too handsy/ being gentle with the actual tagging part of the game. Now that he is better able to gauge what an appropriate level of pressure when tagging is, I've been able to let him experiment with this new way of playing. Tag is a great game for a kid like him as long as everything stays gently because it's a pretty universally fun thing in the eyes of most kids and it doesn't take a whole lot of conversational skills to partake. Of course, most boys in junior high like to think that they're too cool for such games so it might not help him a whole lot with interacting with boys his age. Really though, who wants to interact with someone who is too cool for tag?!
