My 4 year old eats her own poop
CMR1030 posted:
My 4 year old eats her own poop (so nasty) and I don't know what to do about it. She also has anger issues and does not sleep good at all. Sometimes it seems as if she does not understand what I am asking of her. I have bi polar disorder and was wondering if there is a chance she might have bi polar as well. I know a lot of doctors don't want to say yes or no at this age but if she does have it what are other options besides meds. I am not on meds right now and doing my best to deal with my issues and it is very hard. When I take her to the doctor I would like to know my options before hand of what it could be and what I could do.
