So, Hannah is 6 (7 in 3 wks) and talks ALL THE TIME! She does very well in school her grades are all 95+ but her conduct grades are not so hot. Her teacher says she's a sweet girl but cannot control her mouth. Even when she's got no one to chat with she sings to herself in class. Anyone got any ideas so we can try to avoid this next year?
Thanks!!!!

Maybe she needs some practice with you right there to help her know when she can talk and when she can't. Like take her to the movies and remind she can't talk just like at school. And keep practicing that over the summer and see if that will help her get it.

I don't think you can do anything about it truthfully, I have a 10yr. old that's just like that and has been her whole life. It's just a personality type therefore I think the only thing to do is embrace it. As long as she is passing her classes and not getting kicked out of school for it. Have you ever considered she might be bored and might need more stimulation in the class room and that may be the problem at school?

Trust me, we've talked to her 'til we're blue in the face. She understands what she needs to do but she always "forgets"

Just talk to her about it. Tell her when it's okay to be talking and singing to herself and when it's not. She's obviously a smart cookie, so she will understand this. She may also need additional work. What's her doctor suggest too?
