If this child needs a coat and the family has the money to get what this child needs then they need to step up and take care of this young lady. For the fact that she is acting up i would not allow my child to hang out with this child for the fact that they could get into big trouble together and it could be worst then you think it could get. This little girl sounds like she is not getting all the attention that she needs right now.
