She will be 5 next week.
Is it an age thing?
She's always been a really easy, pleasant child, but the last week her behaviour has been out of character. She's not had any new diet, change etc. I'm hoping it's hormones or growth spurt?

My DD1 just turned 5 last week and I could have written your post word for word. She is normally an easy going little girl, but for the past week or so, her behaviour has been quite unpleasant! I know this sounds bad, but it is kind of refreshing to know that its not only my child.

My daughter is a couple months from turning 5 but I'm definitely noticing changes already! She is more easily upset and if I ask her why she is sad, she usually says "I just don't know, I can't stop!" and is upset by that too! This week she has been constantly saying she is hungry and looks more tired than usual by the end of the day, so I'm clinging to the hope it's a spurt and will be over soon.

It's good to know I'm not the only one!

I don't know. I hope things improve soon. My daughter was always difficult, just a clever little girl. I never realised just how difficult until I had my son.
Just that challenging question everything, say the opposite type.
Well behaved at school and always got good grades, never broke the law. But it was tough.
She's still difficult at times but I love her very much and she's turned out pretty awesome. Lol

this is not everything.... Sorry but i believe you are not looking at the whole story (the big picture) there must be something happened within these couple of days
you are the parent and you must discover that, don't give up look for any thing has changed lately in her life, or even in the whole family's life, i'm sure you'll find something, at preschool, with friends, anything
some children may have some simple kinds of anxiety and don't even know how to express, you must figure it out, here is an articale about (anxiety in preschoolers) may help you:
Don't be worry every thing is just fine, it's only some troubles all children may have through there childhood
wish you luck
and by the way: happy birthday for your tittle daughter

I read your blog. I think you have made assumptions about my daughter's "problem"
She is back to her usual self now, it was just a one off that lasted less than a week.

Glad she is back to her usual self. My DD is rapidly approaching 5 and we had a few days like that two weeks ago. Emotional and defiant when she's normally lovely to be around.
She has a friend who is six months older than her and I remember her going through exactly the same thing around the same age.
It's a big year development wise I guess.
