She will be 4 in May and will be starting pre-k soon. We've been having a lot of problems with her behavior recently. Not listening. I will have to ask her to do something 7 times before she even starts to do it. She get's distracted very easily. Even if she is doing something she LOVES. She CAN NOT sit through a movie. And if I (or anyone else) try to disiplin her (sit her in the corner or on the couch) she will try to hit whoever is doing it. And it's usually hard for her to follow simple instructions like "Get your sippy off the table and hand it to daddy".
I just caught her using the potty and she peed on her finger and then licked it. Her biological father has ADHD and I was diagnosed with bipolar disorder when I was 14 but I haven't really shown any signs of it in about 5 or 6 years and I haven't taken medication for it for longer than that. So I don't know if I even really had it to begin with.
I'm just worried she has something mentally wrong with her but I don't want to try to ask the doctor's about it and them diagnose her with something only to find out later, they were wrong and she was just a normal 3 year old.
Oh and she lies, a lot. We've tried the little video's where the characters tell her lying is bad and why. We've explained it outselves.. But she still lies. Like, one night she asked for a movie to watch before bed. I put one on for her and told her after it went out, I was turning the tv off and she had to go to sleep. When it was over, I turned the tv off and she started screaming and crying. When I asked her what was wrong, she told me I was mean and she didn't love me anymore because I threw the controller at the tv and busted it....??????????
