Never argue with a 5 year old.

Question

My one and only gives the vibe she is superior to her classmates by contradicting them, telling them they are wrong or having show off behaviour. I'm afraid she will not have any friends, but am also afraid of the impact on my friendship network (which i desperately need having no family around) as I worry my friends will start to dislike her and will not want to let their children have play dates. At home my child is argumentative, often trying to contradict a statement made by myself or husband even when she has no knowledge of the subject/topic. We try not to engage in an arguments and talk about kindness to friends and how everyone has different ideas but she doesn't seem to understand her own behaviour and how it is inappropriate. She is 5.5 years.
