Re: Socially awkward?

This touched my nerve, sorry. I have a big problem with kids being rude, and the OP's story reminded me of the little girl that my DD tries to talk to everytime we see her. (which is pretty often btw - a couple times a wk at least) So I am coming at it from a different angle.
If your kids see this child a couple times a week that is rude. She had time to warm up to your kids and can manage a simple response if she isn't ready to start playing right away. Some kids are not being rude though when they don't respond. They are taken aback and haven't processed things and freeze up and feel put on the spot. It also is rude that the girl giving them dirty looks. I know when my daughter was not able to manage a response right away she would hide away in our legs or look bewildered but she wouldn't stare or give bad looks.
