My 4yo (turning 5 in September) is SO different than I was at that age. She talks to absolutely everyone. I love that she is curious and outgoing but there are times when it's not appropriate and try as I might to explain it to her, she seems incapable of stopping. For instance, we are moving in a few weeks so there was a rep from the moving company here yesterday to look through every nook and cranny of our house to do an estimate. We kept Olivia occupied upstairs for a while but eventually the rep had to come upstairs and when she did, Olivia was just glued to her, asking her question after question and showing her pictures and stuff. The lady was quite nice about it and didn't seem too bothered. But Olivia was obviously taking up her time and even though I tried to explain that the lady was working, Olivia totally ignored me and just kept talking. This is just a small example. She will talk to every clerk in every store, post office, business, restaurant, you name it and I just can't seem to make her understand that sometimes people are busy and we need to just move on. I also find that in public, she seems to listen to me less than she does at home. It's like she has a switch that she can flip to totally tune me out when we are out and about and I don't know how to go about fixing that. Any ideas? I did get a cartoon video about strangers so she is starting to get the idea not to talk to strangers but she still doesn't really seem to get it. It is so strange to be a relatively shy and private person and have this child so completely the opposite!
