The episode when she watched her brother urinating is not outside the normal spectrum. The other episodes are worrisome and invite very close supervision. Would therapy be useful? There's no way to know, but it certainly would not be harmful. In other words, nothing ventured....... Re: court, if you have concerns all you can do is convey those concerns. Other than that, adults should be supervising her very closely. By that I mean that she should not be behind closed doors or outside the supervision of adults when she is with other children. As an aside, if you and your husband have made the decision to divorce, it is not a good idea to remain in the same household when children are involved.
Thank you for your quick reply.
Sorry I did not understand the last comment about it not being a good idea remaining in the same houshold. Do you mean the kids? Please elaborate.
Also I wanted to mention she has been caught making out with dolls and we have found one of her barbies cut up with some sort of sharp object?? When we ask why she does it or where she has learned the behavior. She just replies I dont know.
I meant that if you and your husband are divorcing, the sooner you are apart the better for the children's sake. Do I understand correctly that you and your husband are stilll together, even though you have decided to divorce?
That is correct. We currently reside together and taking care of some financial things.
Thank you for explaining. I was unsure when is a better time for my child. Her father felt it should be later, which I do not agree.
