Please Help..I have 5 children ages 9-25 and and grandaughter that is 2 1/12 and another one on the way. Here is my problem, my 11 year old daughter seems to feel like she needs to be 'in the know' about everything that goes on in my house, to the point that she interrupts conversations between her father and I!?!! She thinks that everyone that comes here is here to see here and I have had to tell her repeatedly that that is not the case and she needs to go find something to do and yet inevitably she will end up back around to our circle. I am a stay at home mom, I spend all of my free time with my kids, with the exception of my phone time with my other stay at home moms or in-home daycare providers, but that is typically when my kids are at school or at other Summer activities. If I am on the phone when she is home, and it is a conversation that I do not want her to hear, she will follow me around, inside and outside, as I try to escape her prying ears....I feel like I get nothing else done but telling her to 'mind her own business

most little girls like attention, you should try putting her into a sport like ballet or something she may be interested in so she has more time to make friends or finding something that occupies her, i remember when i was that age i was nosy and wanted to know what was going on mostly from boredom and from moving alot i was not able to keep many friends. you can also try getting her an animal if she dosent seem to have many friends.
