My 6 year old daughter tells me her brain is telling her to be mean
My 6 year old daughter tells me that her brain is telling her to be mean. She is usually a very good child and she does very well at school. She does have problems with her speech and is in speech therapy at school and at a local univeristy. I have been told she shows signs of auditory processing disorder and I have also been told that she isn't old enough to be tested. She has problems with discipline but only at home. I know most people are going to say that is normal, which I would agree to a point. She screams and throws things. I'm really worried that she is going to hurt herself or her sister. There are times I have to hold her down and talk very softly in her ear to get her to calm down. When I ask her what is wrong, she tells me her brain told her to not listen or to be mean. So has anyone else dealt with something like this?
