I am so thankful to have ran across this site, especially at this moment. I need help...i have three kids, two girls, 8 and 6, and my son is 3. My girls live with me, son with dad. My 6 yr old daughter Gem has been troubled literally since she was an infant. Starting at three months old she would just get angry and spaz out, scratch ur face, pulling my hair as she got older. And not in the way most babies do. As she got older the doctors said her behavior is because she's 1, she's 2, so on and so forth. Now she's six and I'm scared there's something really wrong. She stays in trouble at home or school, almost as if she needs the attention even though its negative. She is a middle child but she has not gotten any less attention. She hits,kick,bites,spits on, screams at, pinches, whatever u can think of at school to classmates AND teachers. She threw her desk at her teacher two weeks ago. I have talked to her, spanked her, grounded her, taken away toys (everything too a few times), made her write sentences, talked to her more, put her in corner, I've done behavior charts, chore charts, new food charts, every chart you can imagine. NOTHING WORKS!!!! nothing. She acts the same way at home as she does at school. Mood swings are extremely unpredictable, intense, and frequent. I'm considering bipolar disorder. She used to behave for other people but now she's a nightmare no matter who she's with. She recently made up a story about a little boy at school touching her and that incident never took place. I was molested as a child so I know first hand the gravity of the situation but she admitted to her sister that she made it up. She also has recently become obsessed with talking about suicide. She told me that she hears voices in her head that tell her to kill her family and herself and says she is possessed by demons. I dont know what to do. I have started the process for counseling and she has an appointment soon. Has anyone dealt with this??? Please please please help me. There is more. The list goes on..
