6 year old daughter hearing voices telling her to do bad things to 4 year old sister
my 6 year old daughter hears voices in her head telling her to bad/ mean things to her younger sister. she does great in school.her teacher had said he wished all his students were like her, she's always the first one to jump up and help with anything, all a's and b's no problems at all at school only at home..all her anger is towards her little sister and no one else. she hears the voices at school also but says she tell them "no" but at home its harder because, they always are telling her to hurt her sister. I have tried talking to her and told her that if she feels angry or needs to talk she can come and talk to mommy, that no matter what i'm always here and i will always love her..she is very loved. she feels as if some one is always watching or following her,( at home and at school there is always someone there but when she turns around noones there) has nightmares alot and feels as if spiders or ants are crawling all over her( when she's awake and asleep). she has hurt her sister many times. we just went to our intake appt. with a psycologist, but she pulled her sister down from the top bunk( from a sound sleep) on thier bunk beds and left her hanging thier by her neck choking as i walked in she was standing on the other side of the room just watching. needless to say the bunkbeds came apart and are no longer together. This isn't the first time that she has don't something seriously harmfull to her 4 year old sister.Just the other week she push her in the shower and her little sister almost cracked her head open on the falcet. she had caught her self on the shower curtin and ened up with a huge bruise acossed her back for almost 2 weeks. so now they shower apart. i don't leave them alone anymore..but i don't have 100 sets of eyes eathier..she says she wants help and she doesn't want to hurt her sister but the voices (creepy) in her head make her do it. at our intake appt she had told them she wants to not hurt her sister anymore and have the people stop following her everywere. any help would be great!!! please....i'm at a lost for what to do i wanna help my baby girl...and keep her little sister safe...
I think that perhaps you should speak to your Doctor as what you have told us is of some concern, it is possible that the 6year old has strong jealous feelings towards the 4 year old. reading your post I think an evaluation of her behavior by an expert is in order.
I agree with Margy 100%! it's time to get an expert involved. your older child's doctor as well as possibly a psychiatrist. I would also not allow any unsupervised play. i do not believe that your 6-year-old is evil or any such dribble but I think she has some serious anger/jealousy issues that need addressing before they BECOME a problem....and your little one needs protecting from older sibs jealousy. Best of luck..please get your 6-year-old evaluated ASAP.
I know you're scared and worried and the medical professionals in your child's life are going to be your best resource here...good luck hon.
I have a 6 year old daughter, a 4 year old daughter, and a son that would have been three on November 16, but passed away at birth due to complications and sever health problems. I have taken her to her intake appointment yesterday with a psychiatrist. and she has been talking to her counslor at school as well.. but the school says she's perfect that they don't see it. she has some little out burst but mothing that they thought was abnormal because she is in 1st grade and 1st graders tend to act out with other students but she's never hurt any students at school like she has her sister. I'm 23 and just scared...i want to get/ and am willing to do what ever i need to to make sure that both of my babies are safe..it's already become a problem at home with them not being allowed in the same room without an adult in the room.. i don't make a big issue of it.. but us adults all know if they are in a room together one of us ( mommy, daddy, mom-mom, or pop-pop) stay in that room. they don't know why we just make it like we wanna play or hang out with them... She tells me all the time that she's a bad, mean girl, and i tell her thats no she isn't. She was the most well behaved baby, slept through the night from the start, hardly ever cryed, always smiled and laughed, cralwed, walked, talked early on, potty trained at 18 months, right before her lil sister was born. then when her sister was born all this started at first i thought it was a jealousy issue for a couple years. just little stuff like taking toys, bitting, hitting, not wanting to share, stuff kids go through, i was and only child until i was 10 then my mom had two 11 months apart so they fought alot so i kinda related it to them being to close in age and both being girls, but over the past year things have gotten worse. i just don't understand how one could have so much i donno ( hate) towards a sibling. she has told me she never wanted a sister she wanted a brother but god took her brother and not her sister. it's scary!!!! i love them both sooo much.. i spend alone time with both of them almost daily that way we have one on one. we spend alot of family time together doing fun things, she will be the first on to hurt her little sister but if someone else does like when were at the park or something she sticks up for her like they are they best of sisters ever, her little sister looks up to her soo much and even after she gets hit, kicked, puched, whatever happens she still wants to be right next to her n hug her n play.. thanks for your imput... i guess it's nice just having people to talk to about gettin and outsider's imput on the situation as well..
