Hi, I understand that this is a difficult situation. These kinds of behaviour can be typical for someone her age. If she wants attention then the simple answer would be to not give it to her. However, if you believe that this behaviour is extreme and detrimental then you can discuss it with your GP. 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.
