My dd is seven. We see her great grandparents a few times a year they live out of state. they tend to ask me lots of questions about what's going on with the kids instead of asking them because they don't speak up! I will sit there and tell my dd speak up grandma can't hear. She barely speaks up. I prod again. Barely louder at all. This kid wakes me with her voice in the morning. Makes me so mad. It's rude. I've told her it's rude. She does this in lots of situations. She isn't stressed or mad. How do I get her to speak up? I used to think it was because of her age but she hasn't grown out of it. Ugggggg! If my dad told me to speak up I would have. She's smart. Almost straight A's. Well behaved. This just irks me. It feels like she's being stubborn.
