There's a girl in church (I would say 10 - 12 years old) who insists on bugging my 6yo. I think she sees him as a cute little baby and talks to him as such. He is a cute little dude, but is quite bright and basically you can talk to him like he's an adult, so he HATES when she does this. She'll also bug him for a hug and came over and just started tickling him out of the blue. As soon as she leaves my 6yo rolls his eyes and says, "I HATE when she does that." I'd hate it to if I were him so I completely understand. I've told him to ask her to stop but he hasn't yet, so I guess I'm going to have to step in.
How can I politely ask her to stop this behavior?

Well if he is such a big boy, then you need to let him be a big boy. He needs to be the one to tell her.
