She is seeking attention. So she is trying to shock you into listening to her. She is demanding attention actually. I know it is difficult for a working mother. But yo uwill have to spare at least 45 minutes exclusively for her. Or make it up during the weekends. Keep a special time slot where yo uhang out with her/ play with her/ go out for a short walk or to an ice cream place. Strike conversation with her. You can introduce her to reading/ art/dance/music/martialart classes too.
