    Hi,

    I would talk to her pediatrician about your concerns.

    There are a lot of factors to consider when trying to figure out what is going on with a young child who acts out.

    Take care,

    Agree with Kathleen. Start with the Ped, and also see if you can talk w/ her teachers or other caretakers to see what else has been going on.

    Best of luck!
