Q: What if my child is the annoying child? She is 7 1/2 and finds obnoxious boys to hang out with. The girls usually grow weary of her aggressive and rough play. She doesn’t respect personal space and often neglects feelings of others. On the other hand, she can be quite sweet when someone is hurting and wants to care for and cater to them. We’re working to teach her more respectful ways of being around others, but not much seems to be getting through. We’re losing sitters and she’s losing girlfriends.
