I have a 6 year old niece that is very social, and we are trying to make her realize that it's not a good thing.....she will go up to complete strangers and tell them her whole life. Or she just tells everyone about "private" conversations that go on with in their house. My sister in law doesn't even want to take her in public any more because it's embarrassing. She tells random people they don't have much money and stuff like that. What are some ways that i can tell my sister in law how to deal with it. I've never had that problem before, with my children. She is very bull headed as well. They have tried talking to her and telling her the reasons why it's not good to be like that, but she says she can do whatever she wants. Any advice would be great! Thank you!!

Thank you Diana....She has put her on time outs.,....i did suggest to her about taking away certain things....they love to watch tv, i told her not to let her do that if this happens again. And they have tried to explain all the dangers but she is just a little stubborn girl.....i also told her that she needs to stay on top of it....not just let it slide because she is sick of explaining it to her, or putting her on time outs...

Well if they have tried talking to her than i suggest every time she does this put her in time out and start taking away stuff like if she really likes ice cream then say you can't have ice cream tonight because you did this also explain the dangers of talking to strangers at all hope this helps
