My grandma told me I have been acting up lately also. It started to be an everyday thing,, but not ALL THE TIME. Like, after I get home from a long dAy at school I would get cranky get home. She recently took me to therapy. I was totally shocked. It made me way more mad... So NEVER take your daughter to therapy!!! It will make her even more angry.
Julia, I just wanted to jump in here regarding therapy. I think I would have been furious if my parents had told me I needed therapy, but for some kids it's actually really helpful. I decided to take my daughter in (she's 11) about two months ago because since her diagnosis she's been ultra clingy. I don't mind so much, but as she's a pre-teen, I think she needs to start becoming more independent. Anyway, I found a child therapist through my employer and Sarah's now been to five of six sessions. And she absolutely loves it. The therapist is wonderful with her, and usually comes up with a creative way for Sarah to express her feelings.
Anyway, I just wanted to let you know that it's been a really good experience for both of us.
I am a little clingy with my mom but i have been sience my dad has passed away about 6-7 years ago. But I am very independant! :) I am glad therapy is working :) good for her to go to it
