My seven year old opperates well amongst groups of all ages as she has had a lot of exposure to a variety of age groups. However, all this exposure sometimes means she is a little too bold.
For example, she spends a good amount of time amongst teens and twenty-somethings because of her involvement in theater. However, when she pipes up, "Jon, Sarah would be a great girlfriend for you - you should ask her out." it is a little over-the top (Nevermind if John was already dating Jack).
Or, she has also inserted herself into an adult conversation in which she said, "Really Bert, reading is so much fun. I just don't know how you live without it" when Bert was talking about why he never learned, "I'd be happy to teach you." So sweet in terms of intentions but really not what Bert wants to hear.
All of the people she interacts with are pretty cool and "get it" for the most part, but her social circles are expanding and what was cute at 4, and 5 is less so at 7. When I over-hear these things, I have a convo with her about why it may not have been received the way she meant it to be by the other party when we are away from the "crowd" so to speak, but how do I move her into that next level where she can start discerning some of these subtleties for herself a little better?
