My husband is in the military on deployment do think that him not being around may be the reason why she acts like that...I live with my parents and i feel that they spoil her somewhat ...she is my only child...when my husband comes to visit she doesn't act up as much..Do you think his absence is provoking this?
Hello, again. It is certainly possible that this child is picking up on your stress level due to your husband's depoyment - and please thank him for his service - and since she does not have the cognitive maturity to process this stress, she is acting out. Yes, it certainly could be the reason. The interventions I suggested will still work, and actually are very important, since she needs to have a parent who is consistent and calm. Have you gotten any help for yourself? Tricare has a very generous insurance benefit for active duty family members. You will not have a copay. Please consider talking to someone about this.
I wish you well. Take care
