I have a 4 year old daugther that since 3 years old her behavior has gone for bad to horrible. She is super hard headed and always seems to give me a hard time about everything getting dressed, brushing her teeth, putting on her seat belt ect. Here is a few things she has done in the past. Once at the library she had a terrible melt down because she wanted 5 books and I told her to pick 3. I had to carry her to the car and force to put on her seat belt while the whole time she was slapping me and scratching me so hard I was bleeding from my hands. I took her to see a psychiatrist at the age off 3 and he told me nothing was wrong. I kept trying to do other things to work of her behavior time outs, taking things away and even spanking nothing seem to work. Now she is on her third day of vpk school and I was called today because she had a melt down because her twin sister was going to the yellow circle (which is bad) and this end in my child that is now four scratching the asst principle and hitting 2 teachers. They're are telling her behavior is not a normal 4 year old and want to evaluate her. Please help me understand what is going on here and what will happen? And if anyone had been through this.. I feel like I've failed her as a mother!
Doctor told me today it can be signs of schizophrenia or ODD! I am torn :(
(UPDATE) So I was talking to my family today about what's going on with my daughter and it went bad. I feel like they just don't understand how hard and heartbroken and lost I am now. My aunt went on to tell me I should have an abortion now with this baby I am carrying because it wouldn't be fair to any of my kids. Now that I have a child that will need my attention all the time. How would I can for any of my other kids :(
