Sounds a lot like my 3yr old as well! He knows he isn’t supposed to talk to strangers so I’m trying to have him understand that if mom is with you and mom is talking to the stranger it is ok for you to also answer questions. I think for our son he has just been getting mixed messages (“wait for years you’re saying I can’t talk to strangers and now you want me to talk to them?”) that’s my guess. Also he’s shy.
