Hey everyone. I'm a single mom trying to figure out what's going on with my 6 year old. He grades a have dropped within a short period. She throws temper tantrums beyond control. She is abusive during those temper tantrums.

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!
