Concerned

I'm worried my child may be developing depression. She used to be a very happy child and now she's just always angry or upset. She's always having tantrums, even on her grandparents who she's never done this with. She's also began to hurt herself. About 2 weeks ago, I went to give her a bath, and she had bite marks all over her arms and hands. She's not around any other children, ever, so it's not possible that the bites were from anyone else. She also punches herself in the face when she gets frustrated. She'll be 3 on Jan 3rd. I'm just concerned about her mental health. I want her to be as happy as possible.

Sarah Sarah Gilmore I agree with Shikha Batra . Please do give maximum attention to your baby. If you feel she is hurting herself by her own n not anyone else is doing this. Please try to find out why she is doing this and from where she is learning this. Try to give maximum support and your precious time to her.

Hi Madam! I think you need to find out since when such changes are happening. How can you be sure that any one from inside or outside your family could not have affected her on any way? If you talk to her kindly and assure her of your protection, she might open up i think.

Shikha Batra , I'm currently a stay at home mother. I'm with my daughter 24/7. I'm afraid her behavior may be caused by us moving to another state 4 hours away from the rest of our family. I'm really just looking for advice on ways to try and make her happy again, and to get her to stop hurting herself.

hi Sarah Gilmore ! r u a working woman? if yes, please take a day off and see what's happening with her? if not , then please spend more time with her.. it calls for some serious attention. there are some serious questions which one needs to find answer for such as bite marks on her body , drastic change in her behavior, her frustration, her anger. please look for answers as it's a prerequisite to bring her back to her normal happy self.
