    Default My daughter has become really difficult

    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?

    Just as my son gets sorted out, the other starts.

    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.

    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

    Thanks, I am aware of troubles children can have in childhood and triggers of unusual behaviour. I am a teacher myself. But there were none in this instance that I can think of after wracking my brain and over analysing.

    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.
