    My nine year old daughter is starting to have mood swings and she says that she is feeling angry and sad. I was wondering if there were some vitamins or something that we could start using that might help her feel better. Any ideas?

    Hi Mom,

    It is great your daughter is able to verbalize her feelings.

    I have 4-daughters and my youngest was diagnosed with a mood disorder at age 7, so I do know a lot about stuff like that.....

    Sorry to ask a bunch of questions here, but its helpful in giving some suggestions / ideas.

    Does your daughter seem a bit off to you - different or changes in mood??

    Was she an easy, happy toddler (from 2-4).?

    Does she play sports or is she active?

    Is the family unit intact (mom, dad, sisters)?
    Have you moved or any "big" events lately?

    Is this daughter the oldest, or where does she fall in age?

    Thanks !
    -Kathleen
