My daughter is 4. The other day while with the babysitter. She snooped around and found scissors. The babysitter was putting my son to bed. She had chopped her hair some parts down to the scalp. I had to take her to the hair salon to try to even it out well it was pretty bad she ended up with a pixie cut that has no hair longer then her hairline. I had asked her why she did it she said because I want to be a boy. The babysitter moved the scissors and up higher. Well I got a phone call today (2 days later) from the babysitter saying while she was tending to my son she had climb to get the scissors and cut more of her hair.
I don't know what to do she's pretty much bald.
Is this type of behavior a sign of something wrong?
I'm afraid of what's next

The sitter should be paying more attention. But, yes, normal. My oldest sneaked scissors one night & cut her hair in the dark (since she was sneaking) about 2 months before she turned 4 yrs old.
