Sometimes you can use the dolls for role play to help a child talk about things that are difficult.

Why doesn't she want to grow up? Has anyone ever asked her? I have a gut feeling that there's more to the story that you don't know. Talk to her. Ask questions, but don't push if she doesn't want to answer. She might find in time that you she knows you'll listen to her, not judge her, but support her...give you more info.

I started talking like a baby when I was around 9. We moved and I didn't handle it that well. I WAS the baby. It got to the point that I didn't even know I was talking like a baby cuz it was just a normal sound to me. Took me years to 'relearn' how to sound. Yeah, that made me REAL popular. ;)

Sorry, I don't have any advice other than to keep talking to her. Be an ear for her and try to figure out what is going on.

Kids that do this .... yah, well, I am thinking there is more to the story .... this is red flag behavior ... well, it is the talking like a baby more then anything. I question what you don't yet know of her story
