Dear Girls’ World, My classmates say I’m too loud. I just like to talk a lot, but some people don’t like it. Help! — Too talkative
It’s great that you have a lot to say, and you’re one step ahead of kids who are afraid to speak up! We’re not going to tell you to talk less because being chatty is part of your personality. But, think about why it would bother your classmates: Are they trying to concentrate on classwork? Also, are you making sure they get to talk about their opinions or their days? You can keep chatting as long as it’s not hurting anyone. Just make sure you give everyone else their chance to speak, too!
When Katie’s a being little too chatty, she and Alexa hash things out!
