You and her father need to give her all the emotional stability that you possibly can. Bi means two; polar means opposite directions. So basically what is happening to her is that she is constantly being pulled in two directions. I would guess that she is probably a very sensitive child and that she tends to feel things very deeply. I would also guess that she is one who tends to keep her feelings stuffed inside rather than freely expressing her emotions. Encourage her to express what she is feeling, being careful not to allow her to express her emotions in an unacceptable way. If she is angry, let her say that she is angry, but don't tolerate her to throw things. Hug her often, if she will allow it. Show her as much personal attention as you possibly can. Spend some one-on-one time with her, doing things that she really enjoys. Encourage her to be her own person rather than who she thinks others want her to be.
