  • I do and no, she's not. She will talk to herself, her video games, the computer, the TV, anyone or anything. I think she loves to hear her own voice.

  • LOL!!! Three girls and no they always talked. Be grateful she is talking. Listen to what she is saying and you will have less problems with her when the teen years come 'round.

  • My sd11 likes to sing and dance in her room. She tries to act shy but we know better. She's kind of a know it all which is funny because she is so innocent...her ideas of knowing it all are limited and crack me up!

  • NO! She'll talk your ear off if you let! Try to set aside time for her to talk to you even if it's 5 minutes, no texting or calls. A journal is good too. This will allow her to talk to you later or just let it out! Another good idea is a notebook for just you and her. We did it in school a BFF notebook, she'll think it's cool and a good way for her to communicate with you even though you are busy

  • LOL!!! I have 4 girls and my youngest JUST turned 12.... she's SO quiet that it scares me actually! My others weren't like this. It's like this one thinks too deeply and loves her solitude. I'm TOTALLY not used to the quiet anymore so I don't like it! Maybe you could box some of your girls chatter up and send it to me? lol
