Customer Question

My child (8yr old girl) was with the neighbors 4yr girls and told them to poop and pee on the floor in their room - and they did it. The neighbors told me and she admitted to doing it and says she doesnt know why she did it. I am really concerned that she would tell them to do this and that i need to take her to therapy or something as that is not Normal behavior. I am worried and don't know what to do.
