Okay here it is, we used to have 20+ goats had them for years and didn't have time for them anymore, so we sold them, same with the chickens, BUT to top it all off my daughters puppy (literally hers, he would wait on her to get home from school then never leave her side) got out and killed. (She did not see him or any of the blood or anything like that, she just knows how he died) oh, he got ran over by a car.
Anyway ALL of this happened in about a month, my daughter (5) is acting up really bad, just attitude mainly.
Could this be her reaction to all of the things that has happened lately? Should I turn around and get her another puppy (her puppy was a year old), or should I try and help her deal with it some other way?
I don't want her thinking that everything is replacable, but at the same time, it is okay to be sad. How do I help her deal with it in a healthy manner?
