First of all, thank you for doing your show. I look forward to it it every week and love your balanced approach!! I'd call in to the show, but I'm working at that time.
I am extremely concerned about my 9 year old daughter. She's a brilliant, loving, sensitive little girl, however, her other side is alarming.....abusive, hurtful and angry.......extremely inflexible. She's been diagnosed with a learning disability, but it is agreed that something else is going on with her. It's been a struggle since she was an infant.
Do you have any insight to offer. We want to help her, but she shuts everyone out if its not what she likes hearing.
Mental illness runs in my family and I feel she's a victim of it. It's tearing our family apart......any advice would be greatly appreciated!
God bless......thank you for your calm demeanor, balanced outlook and positive messages!
What I am sensing about your daughter is that she is responding to a lot of chaos, over busyness, stress: life is just too fast, too noisy, and too full of conflict and demands for her to handle.
Kids with learning disabilities can have a rough time with regular life. Especially girls, who deal with learning disabilities differently.
I'd like to suggest that a) you not jump to put a label of mental illness on her. This is worth exploring, if your daughter's pediatrician suggests that. Go in, have some more tests... but don't jump to conclusions unless there's a definitive result.
I'd like to suggest you look at the energy and vibration of your household, the home life, your relationship with any partner, your energy, your daughter's school, if there's any possibility she's been or is being abused, if there's abuse in your family (as well as mental illness). Is there a background of violence? What foods does your daughter eat? Is is a lot of chemicals? Have you had her tested for food allergies... What is her school like? Lots of kids, or a calm mellow place? How much screen time does she have? What kind of screen time is on in the house? And so on.
If your daughter is a Highly Sensitive Person, an introvert, empath, an intuitive... she's going to struggle with the busyness of everyday life at a much higher level than a kid who's extroverted and happy-go-lucky.
Don't be too quick to say "something is wrong with her." It may be, she's completely fine being Who She Is, and she's picking up on the chaos around her, and it's just too much.
From a paranormal perspective: she doesn't have spirits inhabiting her, she's not possessed, etc.
She's just overwhelmed with life, she feels very chaotic and having a hard time settling and self soothing. She has too much stimulation, and doesn't have the ability to get clear of that.
It's a lot to look at... my suggestion is a) get her tested further and b) look deeply at al the other things that are going on in your and her life... the energy is chaotic, and that doesn't work for sensitive kids.
