i dont want my niece to act more like a adult just more her age.. like why do i got to tell her to take a shower, brush your teeth, brush your hair stop eating candy...plus at school she was getting bullied but wont defend herself.. shes a big girl and so beautiful and has a big heart its sad that they pick on her.. i wont her to be able to stand up for herself instead of always telling the teacher.. shes a strong young girl that i love so much how can i help her....?

your right.. but she goes to jr high next yr she cant act like a lil girl then they will really pick on her.. shes so beautiful and dont care how she looks.. if her shirt is all dirty or butt on her pants are dirty, what can i say to her to motivate her.. she always crying because they pick on her about her weight, makes me cry to see her hurt..

I am going to be honest with you she is acting her age most pre teens still have to be reminded to do a lot of things and as for not sticking up for herself when being bullied most schools have an anti bullying policy and it could be that telling the teacher is the acceptable recourse the school will allow so she doesn't get in trouble as well.
