I have a friend with a 7 year old daughter, and she is turning her into a little woman. Make up, provocative clothes the lot. And she is obsessed with all the kids in our group wanting her " as the princess" or "I´m the prettiest" and her behaviour drives me nuts. Now she has started following my son around, who is also 7, and telling him that he loves her and she is his girlfriend! He´s bemused to say the least. And to quote him " she doesn´t ever want to climb trees or do anything fun". Too frightened to chip the nail polish I expect.
Why can´t people let little girls be girls?? I know I only have boys, but is this normal for girl behaviour???
And do we just ignore it? My son really doesn´t like playing with her at the moment, as it leaves him uncertain of how he feels.
