Short questions: if our daughter is putting off her classmates and friends, should we leave it mostly to her peers to tell her? Or should we keep telling her? Or let it be?
Our daughter becomes unusually animated when she’s hanging around her friends (virtually of course). Sing-songy, often loud speech, often repetitive and doting-- kind of the best ways I could define it. At the same time, most of her friends are pretty reserved (or maybe suppressed by our daughter’s energy?). We have noticed that some of her online friends seemed put off by it. And we don’t know how much insight our daughter has. And one friend has actually dropped off discussions because of it (they told her she was “annoying” when my daughter asked why they dropped off ).
Not sure if she’s gaining better insight over time and we’ve gently reminded her in the past. So do we let her continue to be her earnest self, or try to reign her in?
Would love to hear people’s thoughts. Thanks in advance.
