We were having dinner at home when my son, six months old, pulled the table cloth and poured everything on the floor. As hilarious as it was, I was a little disappointed that he disregarded my social cues when I sternly told him ‘no’ before pulling the table cloth. Could it be that his social referencing cues haven’t set in yet? At approximately what age does a baby begin to demonstrate social referencing?

Social referencing refers to the process of kids looking at the facial expressions of adults or those around them to determine how they should proceed in a certain situation. Think of it as what adults use to read social cues. For instance, when having a candlelit dinner, your little one may be tempted to touch the flame, but before they do, you will notice them looking at you first. If they sense fear and anxiety on your face, they will naturally hesitate. So, at approximately what age does a baby begin to demonstrate social referencing? Usually, social referencing kicks in between eight and ten months, but some kids can read social cues as young as six months. I wouldn’t be worried about it so much when kids are younger because they still have time to develop this skill.

Babies have different growing stages, my baby fully develop her social referencing around 1 year and a half old. She manage to understand some at the age of 7 months but it is their nature to do what is being told not to do. Even now that she is already 2 years old there are times that she's not responding to it, but mostly she does. Just keep on showing your facial expression when you are mad or when you are not approving what he was doing, eventually he can understand that while growing up.

I would say at about 2 years of age. A baby is more familiar with other people besides the mom. They also get used to their environment and can know who comes and goes by their short term memory. They also tend to have a strong sense of touch to people and can develop affections.

Child begins to develop theoir social referencing at age three. They will start learning to understand things around them. They will be concerned and take into account their behavior by the viewpoints, demands, attitudes and expectations of the people around then including cultural norms and values. Also, they will going to have the ability to respond on their social environment and can have more sophisticated look of people.
