C. "your baby's behavior indicates stranger anxiety, which is common at his age."
Stranger anxiety, common in infants aged 6 to 8 months, may cause the child to cry, cling to the caregiver, and turn away from strangers. Typically, it occurs when the child starts to differentiate familiar and unfamiliar people. The child's behavior doesn't necessarily indicate shyness. According to Piaget, fear of pain characterizes the operational stage of development in school-aged children, not infants. Temper tantrums are typical in toddlers who are trying to assert their independence. During a temper tantrum, children may kick, scream, hold their breath, or throw themselves onto the floor rather than cling to a parent. Apply
