My daughter just turned 7 and she has anger issues that come out of nowhere. Also she hates her life?
She has an obsessive compulsive disorder and adhd. The other day my oldest daughter and her were swimmimg and just laughing having a good ole time when she just snapped and shoved my oldest down and screamed at her. This happens alot and really I cant ever understand why,She is like a light switch real sweet 1 min. and horrible the next. Anyway I told her to sit out and think about what just happened and she cried for hours. Then she came to me with a note that asked do u like me YES or NO I circled yes and explained to her that just because I correct her dont mean I dont love her. She turns and hands me another note that said she hates her life and noone loves her she had no friends and she wanted to go to heaven. Oh god I burst into tears what do I do shes only 7 whats going to happen when she gets older. This has been an ongoing problem.

I dont know too much but how well do you discipline your daughters? You cant say yes one minute and no another because that affects children. If it is something serious go to the doctor or even a counseler person could help. Pray about it too. Dont worry about the future but focus now on loving your children....work on making sure they get even attention....some feel as if they aren't loved enough and I know that is hard to hear as a parent. Since she asked you if she liked you she doesn't feeled loved 24/7.....and remember discipline is good even if she screems and yells. A counseler may help a lot...someone who deals with kids a lot....I felt like her when I was young at times. She wants to really feel loved if she says she hates life.....and well I agree though too I would rather be in Heaven....b/c it is a better place. Are you married? Sometimes even divorce or both parents not invovled in the childrens life affects this a lot. I will be praying for you and make sure to spend time individually with each one such as books and dinner table every night...not so much tv too......I will be praying for you.....God loves you.....

you neeed to get her into counsiling it stinks that someone else must step into ur parenting grounds but it will help her unleash those inner feelings. She also might need some medication maybe not now because she is young but for when shes older. Trust me it helps. My brother has always had anger issues so he had to take pills that balance a chemical in his brain to relax him and make him instead of depressed happy. it works. A doctor will help. Good Luck and best of wishes.

she'll get over it, like 6 years from now, i went through the same thing at her age, but i had hormone problems,
got over it when i was 12 and now i love my life, my family and my family actually thinks am the perfect daughter.
it takes time,
u know i being sick as a child isn't easy, it makes u feel different, and not wanted.
give her time.

Silly hormones

she is probally bi-polar

you should get her some help!

I'm in the same boat-my daughter is doing this as well-but at 12 near 13 years of age. Get your doctor to refer her to a therapist-they will help you both. Mine does the same thing with the love issue-constantly needing reasurrance-it's all part of those ugly nasty thoughts that play like a record in her head. There are some really good books on the subject. I'm considering Tuesday-asking if my daughter can be put on meds-her melt downs are taking longer for her to come down from. Mine refuses to go to her room-but really they need to get alone to get quiet. OCD causes there circuits (brain) to misfire-and when they melt down-it is a circuit overload-and it doesn't take much to set it off. My daughter just recently got diagnosed and it hasn't been easy-but I got her real excited about therapy-and she loves her therapist. We just have to learn to be the best advocate for our children: study on the subject, educated our families and schools if need and help our kids the best me can. "Freeing your child from Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder" by Tamar Chansky PHD, has been pretty good read. Also there are books for children-so that you can explain to her that She can't help those thoughts-that it is OCD and not her-and that you guys can beat that OCD!! Good luck. My daughters doctor told me that he know of collegues who have varying degrees of OCD and that many, many professional, stable people learn to deal with it. This knowledge really helped my daughter. Good Luck

Hi, urm, i'm 14 and i have OCD and ADHD, although it has calmed down alot as i've grown older, you've just got to encourage her, be patient, have long talks before bed, etc, make her feel comfortable, and she may find it hard or confusing to say whats bothering her. Medication is a big step and needs alot of serious thinking. Take her to her doctor, but what she really needs is a parent.

she needs therapy or when she gets older shes going to have serious problems

My previous post was meant for an adult, but I'll include it. There is a lot of information on ADHD in children in sections 22 - 25, at ezy build, below.

I suggest 2 Omega 3 fish oil supplements, daily: (certified free of mercury) it is best if consumed with an antioxidant, such as an orange, or grapefruit, or their FRESHLY SQUEEZED juice.

Has she been to a p(a)ediatrician, or developmental psychologist? Some tips on making friends & popularity are in section 9.

OCD: If it takes up more than an hour, daily, gets worse, or interferes with your life to any great degree; seek therapy, because it can quickly take over a person's life. See section 7, on OCD, at ezy build, below and also view section 6, since some consider to be an anxiety related disorder.

Practice one of the relaxation methods on pages 2, 11, 2c, or 2i, daily, and when needed. Also, give the EFT a good tryout, to see if it helps you. There is also a version for use in public places, (if you like, you can claim to have a headache, as you massage/lightly tap your temples). "Even though I suffer from OCD, I deeply and completely accept myself." Section 53, and pages 2, 2.q and 2.o at http://www.ezy-build.net.nz/~shaneris also refer.

(The following is a variant of EMDR therapy, which has been used successfully for those people suffering from Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, insomnia, and anxiety: it is easily learned, quick to use, yet can be very effective. Such apparantly unusual techniques are easy to dismiss, out of hand, but give it a good tryout, because I use it every day). Prior to using either of the methods in the above paragraph, first sit comfortably, and take a deep breath. Then, without moving your head, move your eyes from the left, to the right, and back again, taking around a second to do so (say: a thousand and one: this takes approximately a second). Repeat this procedure (without the words, although you can count, subvocally if you like) 20 times. Then close your eyes and relax. Become aware of any tension or discomfort you feel.

Then open your eyes, and take another deep breath, and repeat step one, closing your eyes, and relaxing afterwards, in the same manner. Then, repeat the procedure one last time. Some people may find that this is all they need do. Some people may find that this is all they need do. With experience, you may find that you can practise this in public, with your eyes closed, which greatly widens the window of opportunity for its use, and avoids attracting unwanted attention. It markedly reduces distractions, during the relaxation techniques, which makes them more effective, and rewarding.

Because OCD is considered to be related to anxiety, try getting yourself some "worry beads", (ask at a religious supplies store, Catholic church, or Muslim mosque) and deliberately replace your former activity with moving them about between, or around your fingers: it takes about 30 - 40 reps, for most people to instill a new habit. A stress ball, or get a balloon, add a couple of tablespoonsful of flour, and enough water to make a stiff dough; tie and squish repeatedly.

wow that sounds my little 6 yr old,she's VERY spoiled and takes complete advantage of it!have you been spoiling her from the time since she was a newborn,or has anyone else?she's too young to have issues like the one's you listen...wow...try and get her to a child physciologist,i have to take mine,obviously my parenting versus someone's else's has made my child a misdemeanor and a lot of mental issues has developed for my child...just take her to a child shrink and see what goes on from there...good luck!

My brother hasthe same problems.... but he has autism [aspergers disorder]

Maybe call a psychiatrist about this and talk to them. Maybe you should consider sending your daughter to therepy.

Sometimes situations have to be taken care of outside the internet, if you get my drift. People don't always tell the truth on here......

If you havent brought her to see a specialist than you should. You cant keep guessing her problems... even if you "know" you're right. Im not trying to be rude, if it seems like it I apologize, but my sister went through this and it really wasnt nice to see. You can get all the help you need just by walking into your doctors office. Browse online for things you can do. Gosh, Google answers practically everything there is to question about :)

Good luck!

My son is the same way. He is on Concerta for ADHD, he takes Risperdal to get him to sleep and a mood stabilizer. Then he would get mad caused it rained out, he would throw things and just go crazy. So the doctor put him on zoloft 25mg. He is 14. It really made a big difference. Of course he gets upset somewhat, he is a teenager but not like he was. Of course there is side effects which you know but he has had none. Just talk with your doctor. I hope everything turns out ok.

check for bio polar

id take her to a pediatrician, she needs blood tests and all the physical things checked, then you can look at her mental side of things.make sure you tell her that you want to help her and that youll do whatever it takes to make her happy.she needs reassurance that youll take care of her.finding out now whats wrong will help her in the long run.good luck

Black Rocks
Maybe its because she has too much stress and she thinks that you like your other kids better . you need to treat her better and see how it goes. and maybe when she is talking you don't listen . i think you should spend more time with her . just give it a shot . well i hope i help ! Good luck :)

maybe she feels like no one loves her in her life right now, which isn't true because you must since you are concern with her. besides getting help with a doctor, maybe try to make sure you either hug her or say that you love her every day. those two things can make a difference in someone's life.

i hope the best for you two! :]

See as many doctors and specialists as you can to relieve this child of her pain! and yours! All I can say is that my heart goes out to you both but you are the parent so it's up to you to find a solution or a managable system.

Hi There,

I'm sorry to hear this about your daughter...

Hmmm....What you should probably look into if you already know her ailments is what effects the drugs she is taking are... if they are giving her some type of speed to control her adhd, and some kind of relaxant for the ocd... it might also be cause ing her to act quickly without thinking if the consequences or causing her to be paranoid that no one likes her and that everyone is against her!!! Like her sister....maybe why she pushes her and whatnot!

Just a thought...I hope this helps...

It's sad when kids get diagnosed with things at such a young age...they should really try not to drug kids at such a young age...I think the medical industry is just out of control... with their diagnosies and with their drugs....

Maybe it would be a good idea to get her into counseling. If she has these issues she might be having trouble making friends.

I don't know if she's on medicine, but my younger brother was put on prozac for ADD and started acting like you described. It got very bad and we had to take him off. His next medicine actually helped. If she is on meds, you might want to get them reevaluated.

She might be Bipolar

Well do ya?!
She might be bipolar..its a pretty young age to have it though.

she doesn't like the way she acts either- please get her help. i know you probably dont want her on any more meds than you have to, but... you do what you've gotta do. if she was diabetic, you wouldn't deprive her of her insulin. things will only get worse and it's not fair to her, you, or her sister (or those around her).

Keep up the positive reinforcement. She may be noticing that she is different from other children because of the adhd. Just my opinion, but I think as long as she knows she is loved and consequences are inforced because of her acting out, she'll be okay! You didn't mention if she was on medication. If she is, I would check the side effects because maybe she is experiencing side effects.

Maj Hewitt's Equestrian Acad
She may be suffering from autism - our son displayed similar behaviour at that age, and was diagnosed with mild autism at 8 or 9. So I'd urge you to have her checked for that, as well. Good luck!

Grrr these idiots who think giving her a good sound smacking is soooo wrong, a smack IS NOT THE ANSWER.

Children with OCD & ADHD have enough issues, and hitting them will often make the behaviour worse, and alienate the parents and child from each other. Sadly it is not unusual that a child with OCD has thoughts of being unwanted etc, especially after there has been an dispute with parent or sibling.

Is this a fairly new behaviour or has it been there from the start? Is she being bullied at school?

Please see your daughters paediatrician and ask for a full assessment be done again, and a re-evaluation of her medication, just to make sure the medication is not interacting with each other, or causing this behaviour, especially if this is a new behaviour starting to show. You have the right to ask for a re-evaluation.

When she is upset and crying, try cuddling her while gently rocking, reassuring her by saying often that mummy & daddy love her, and want her very much, if she pushes you away, then let her cuddle or hold her favourite toy, try not argue or yell when she does, (I am sure you don't), as this may reinforce her feelings of being unloved etc.

My daughter has ODD, ADHD, dyslexia and a few OCD traits, her grandfather had OCD really bad, and I have a OCD traits myself.

It is very distressing hearing your child saying you hate her and don't want her, I sort help from my daughters paediatrician, who re-evaluated the medication, and organized for some counseling for us all, which helped as my daughter learnt to recognize signs of anger, anxiety etc coming on, and she would come and talk to me, about what she was feeling. She was later put on anti-depressants, while at high school due to being bullied. She is now a healthy well adjusted young woman of 22.

I am not saying it will be easy, because it wont be, just continue to be there for your daughters, tell you love & want them, and don't be afraid to seek help.

You need to contact her pediatrician. They will be able to check her out and maybe give her some medicine that will hep and maybe a children's councelor.

She really needs some professional help...maybe you should go together. Hug her every chance you get.

Sorry your daughter is having such difficulties, and sorry for the rest of you too as all this is so unsettling for everybody. You sound like a very loving mother.

I could hardly stand to read through the answers to your question. Strangers making diagnoses and giving you parenting advice based on your 10 lines of history.....it's not good.

I don't blame you for being worried, but please get advice from professionals, not Yahoo Answers. It would be more appropriate to seek out a real support group in your area if it helps to talk to others who share similar problems. At least there would be someone moderating the discussion.

Please take your daughter to the doctor right away. Even if you have already, and she is on medication, you need to keep going back to the professionals. You may need see a counselor and get advice on how to manage these outbursts. You need strategies.

Best wishes to you.
