Is it normal for a 7 year old to state that they want to kill someone and hope they die... We are having trouble with my 7 year old and starting to work with a therapist...but I am just curious if a 7 year old says she wants to kill her brother/mom/dad or hurt them when she is angry is that typical for a 7 year old to say when they are mad? I know she would never follow through with the statements; but she is aggressive so just curious if it is typical in the heat of the moment to sya these things or not? I now I hate you is but we have graduated...so just asking.

Not for my dd or her peers , this is not normal behavior.   DD calls me mean mommy and "i hope you trip", nothing about killing though.   That is alot of anger in a small brain/body.

No. Keep her in therapy to find the root of the issue. Good luck.

No, not normal

My 13 year old would never say that. Nor has she ever said she hates me.

You are not alone...My son has said it plenty! He has multiple disabilities, one of them being ADHD with Low Frustration Toleranace, which he too flies of the handle very quickly. In his school they follow ABA therapy program/positive reinforcement. Also, I have learned when and and when not to "feed into" what he is saying. Once he realized that he got a MAJOR reaction from saying that, he used it more often. Now I ignore it a lot of them time because I know when he is just saying it to say it. There are times however when I feel as though he really means it (crying, screaming, hyperventalation, etc.) I scoop him up and rock him, even if he is yelling at me, and I tell him positive things about himself and how much I love and want him. Get hooked up with a behaviorist.

Sometimes it is not because there "is alot of anger in a small brain/body," it can be just a symptom of an underlying condition; example: ADHD with low frustration tolerance, Autism, or maybe they just need a behavior therapist...It does not make your child a bad/angry/f*d up kid, it makes them just need some extra help...also look into her genetic makeup...maybe some family members have psychological issues? anxiety? or whichever...
