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!
