Hi, new to this. But I am really struggling with my just turning 11 year old daughter. I'm at my wits end. She goes so angry shouts and screams at me and my partner. She hates us, we are idiots. All over something small ie unable to help her with homework or wont get her something she wants. Now it's getting to the point where her grandparents are complaining as she is lashing out to them. I guess I'm just looking for advice before I turn to a GP for help.

Hi, I understand that this is a difficult and upsetting situation. Have you asked her why she's acting like this? If there's anything wrong, or if there's something that's troubling her. Children don't tend to come straight out and say what's wrong, but they will talk around it. Consistency in discipline is very important and if the child is being difficult then the discipline becomes more important, what have you tried and what worked what didn't work? Perhaps a different approach to discipline might help. However, if you feel that her behaviour warrants going to the doctors then go ahead, you know your child better than we do, it may also help to rule things out even if nothing comes of it. You may find it helpful to read our articles on child behaviour. If you feel you need further support please e-mail us at askus@familylives.org.uk or call our freephone helpline on 0808 800 2222.
