  • Explain it to her. Let her know her friend can not help it and she should not talk that way. She needs to talk the way she knows how and help her friend instead of talking like her. How old is she? Right now its probably a new thing and she doesn't understand that its not something the other girl wants to do. So explain it to her that some people talk that way because they have to but she can't because she doesn't need to and that talking like that may hurt her friends feelings.

  • Do you honestly think that it is just something she does for attention? If so I would ignore it. Sorry.
