My almost 6 YO SS was still grunting at people and refusing to talk to anyone. I work at Walmart and we go in frequently. Everyone tries to say hi and he was just always mean. I finally told him that’s very rude and found out he didn’t really realize it’s rude. (His mom lets him do it and has no discipline or structure for him) I told him to just say hi back and he doesn’t have to say anything else. As long as I’m there, it’s fine. And ever since, he’s been nice and will talk to Walmart employees. Your little is much younger but explaining that it is rude and you don’t want them to think he’s a rude little boy because he’s a great little boy may help. And telling him that saying hi back is ok, because he might not understand he’s supposed to.
