Have Medical Questions? Ask a Doctor Online!
Hello, this is Dr. David. I am reviewing your question now and will be with you momentarily.
I am sorry your granddaughter is having these terrible tantrums.
that is too bad that dad has to work so many evenings
is mom working as well?
changes in school and changes in parent work schedules and time away from kids can be very upsetting.
you should keep a log of her diet as well. certain foods, too much sugar, preservatives, gluten could also be making her upset
chronic ear infections can also be very upsetting as well. she may benefit from allergy medications to help decrease these ear infections.
is there a pet or animal at home? allergies to pets or dust could also to be blamed for colds and runny nose and ear infections.
do you have other questions?
I think I would rebel as well with that sort of tight schedule and not enough time with mom and dad
that is unfortunate that the parents have to work so many hours and be away from the kids so much
yes, I think the frustration is most likely due to lack of time with mom and dad. and lack of family time
