Default Little sheltered girl

The best thing that you can do for her is to not play into her behavior. It sounds like she pretty much uses the crying to get her way. Yeah, she sounds very sheltered too, but she seems like she's well on her way to becoming a master manipulator. As long as you make it clear to her that her behavior is completely unnacceptible at your house, she will know that it won't work with you. I have a girl who was 4 when she started here and she was so much like that! She would pull a lot of the same behaviors and it would drive me up a wall. I guess you could say that I toughened her up by not babying her...ever! It sounds mean but it really does help! I was never mean to her, I would just call her out on the crying and pouting if there wasn't a solid reason for it.
