Please, please, please help me. I don't know what to do anymore...I have a 5 year old little girl. When she was a baby she didn't just cry the three hrs/day to achieve the diagnosis of being colick, She cried all day. She was a terrible terrible two, a horrific three. She started to calm down at four...a little. She just turned five and I am beside myself. My daughter is very anxious...she screams, she screams all the time-over anything, everything. I cannot get her to stop. When she has these fits-which are multiple times a day-she throws things, she injures herself, she scratches her legs, she pulls her own hair and she says horrible things to me. She swears and calls me names and says she is going to kill me. Last time she actually prayed out loud that God would take me away. My daughter is sweet and gentle and thoughtful 50% of the time, but the other 50% she is... like this. She behaves really well at preschool, only occassionally she will cry, but just wimpering and briefly. But at home, the fits go on for hours. I have tried time-outs, re-directing her, getting down at eye level and talking softly to her, postive reinforcement, alone time with mommy, schedules, rewards-nothing has worked. Two of my neighbors have complained about her behavior, calling me an awful mother with out-of-control children. My heart is broken. I spend my days trying to create an amazing childhood for my kids. We play, we explore, they are my whole life. Having children is all I have ever wanted. Why has this happened to me, what am I doing wrong? Please help.
