    Have you talked to her teacher? How does she behave at school?

    There can be a bunch of reasons a child acts this way, but getting to the root of it is important.

    Have you moved lately? Does she attend afterschool care? Are both parents in the home? Has there been a new sibling?
    Any changes at all lately that you can think of that may be stressful to her?

    A bit more information would be helpful. Thank you!
