MY nine year old girl seems like two people at times. One minute she can be the sweetest little girl on the planet, and the next she can lash out, targeting her brother, her mother and I. Her mother and father were recently divorced, and she shares her time with them equally, week on, week off. She is a straight A student, and has never had problems at school with her friends; however, at home she will try and put words in our mouths and say things like "well you just dont love me then" or "you dont want me around anymore". Also, after a week with one parent, while she is bashing the other, she will go back and do the same thing with the other. It seems to me that she is trying to get us (her parents) to fight over her love and attention, which seems a plausible explanation. My question is does this seem to be normal behavior for someone her age, and if so, what can be done to let her know that playing these games is not right and will not be tolerated?
