Dd 6 can be lovely help others at school , but if I hurt myself she will maybe laugh .she is always wanting to tell on others st school and seeing the worst on people's actions and being critical . For example a friend wrote her a card and she concentrated on the spelling mistake ? She doesn't have a best friend and says she wants one at times other times she isn't bothered . Yet she is popular enough . I aren't overly critical and don't understand why she is like this or how to approach any advice ?

Unless she never shows empathy I would put it down to her laughter being a nervous response to an unfortunate event, it's not necessarily your DD finding it actually funny you hurt yourself.

Tattling is a way of getting herself positive attention isn't it, contrasting actions. I found even if I was busy with something I noticed there was often a sped up particular tone of voice or expression on their face, bursting to tell? You could tell her that the only time a grown up wants to hear about other people's naughty behaviour is when it's a safety issue, potentially dangerous.

Re: The best friend thing - you say she's popular, so that doesn't sound like she's socially awkward, so I wouldn't worry. It's no bad thing to have a bunch of friends, one single best friend can leave a big gap if they fall out or move away.

I think your right it's maybe her age . She can be kind but also does this horrible snigger at times at people . I think it's learnt behaviour from school tbh , as she has also started finding hilarious to use the word fat as a insult - especially at the cat confused
