She should arrange an evaluation with a pediatric mental health clinician. It's important in situations like this to rule out any emotional disorder vs normal-spectrum childhood behavior problem. It's not unusual for young children, when they are angry, to say things like 'I hate you' or 'I wish you weren't my parents'. By itself, this is not a cause for concern. But it has to be examined in the context of the broader situation (e.g., school, family history, peer relationships, medical status).
