At this age her behaviour reflects what she has learned from those closest to her. Monitor your own behaviour and work out when you raise your voice or criticise people. Make a strong effort to speak politely at all times, not just around children and old people. Instead try singing all day. Sing anything, radio songs, children's songs, showtime tunes, spirituals, anything. The act of singing around children, and it has to be live not recorded, actually changes the thought pattern in the brain of the growing child. It helps the singer too.
