Customer Question

Hi Dr. Mackey,
I have a 4 year old daughter who's in PreK she started the year out so well but now it seems that she's taking a turn in the wrong path. The teacher is complaining that she's been hitting, throwing things and telling the teacher "No" when asked to clean up or down a task. She's been put on several times out increasing the time when the behavior is repeated but it seems that she's getting worse. Do you think that I should get her evaluated?

yes, you should have her evaluated by a doctor and child psychologist

how is her behavioral at home?

are you exerting discipline at home?

are you asking her to clean up and wash up for dinner and clean up after play?

you have to parent and give her instructions and discipline at home as well.
