My child has undergone a major surgery of ruptured apendicitis and.perinotitis.He had spent about a month in the hospital.. and she has started behaving abnormally at times..with erotic behaviour,different facial expressions and at times she is absolutely normal
It is understandable that she is fed up and frustrated at not being out and about for a month. She is probably still not completely recovered.
You do not say how old your daughter is. At around the age of 10 or so, the hormones start to kick in and all children start to behave in a way that they never used to. This is part of growing up.
She may be picking up these facial expressions from her friends or from seeing other children do it at school.
Keep a note of what she is eating and drinking and if she has started her monthly menstrual cycles, keep a record to see if she is worse a few days before here period comes. This would show if it is a hormonal thing because of her periods.
You can help her by giving her a healthy and well balanced diet with lots of fresh fruit and vegetables. Cut down on the amount of sugary foods she eats and also avoid processed foods and junk foods. If she drinks fizzy drinks, cut the amount of those and give her more milk or water to drink.
Children that are ill, tired, don't drink enough fluids, have a problem (may be at school) can also exhibit unusual behaviour.
Don't allow her to have too many sweets, foods and drinks that contain artificial additives and colourants. Look on food labels for the E numbers. These are the ones to avoid.
Don't allow her to continue with her unacceptable behaviour even though she has been or is still ill. But do still show her that you love and care for her. Give her hugs and cuddles and do some activities together, even if it is reading a bed time story to her or sitting down and doing some colouring together.
