"A few folks have mentioned going to a doctor about this issue and that's fine. Just beware of any jump to placing your child on meds. I would definitley use behavioral interventions first (star charts, rewards for good behavior, etc.)."

"She could just be a bit over the top for bright and creative. It sounds odd, but often kids like that spend a great deal of time in their imaginations. Still, discussing it with a doctor seems like a good idea. We have called our ped. ahead of time…"

"What you describe sounds so frustrating! Is it possible that she's getting something out of the negative attention she's receiving after doing these things? It also sounds like she just doesn't have much impulse control yet. If…"

"Hi Laura, it can be so frustrating to be struggling with this kind of behaviour day after day. In some susceptible children, intolerance (not allergy) to food chemicals (both natural and artificial) is one thing that may cause 'head in the…"

5 year old with head in the clouds.

My daughter just turned 5 today but I swear she still acts like she just turned 2.  She colors on the walls, throws things in the street, crawled behind the computer desk and knocked over the monitor, and she just broke the coffee table by jumping on it.  I could handle it if it were a few incidents, but this stuff happens every day!  She knows she shouldn't do these things and she's not purposely doing them to act out.  She just gets lost in her thoughts and forgets to think before acting.  I…See More
