She is the most work ever, she constantly climbs and jumps off of things. She is a dare devil and also a pain in the butt at times. She dumps out 4 lt jugs of mulk , climbs all the way to the tip cupboards. Any suggestions or if you , yourself have gone through this your feedback would be great!!

Hi! Your daughter might be just a normally active, curious child. On the other hand, your child might be searching for sensory input. Sometimes children with sensory issues will slam their bodies into walls, jump off of high places, and do other things like this to get the same sensory input you or I would normally get. If you think this might be the issue, there are two great books on the subject. The Out-of-Sync Child by Carol Stock Kranowitz explains sensory issues in children, or what are sometimes called sensory processing disorders. Her second book, the Out-of-Sync Child has Fun teaches parents and other caregivers how to help the child play and find activities that will give them the sensory input they are craving. I hope this helps! :-)

I'm not saying your child is austistic or has some other disorder. As far as I know, children can have sensory issues without any other disorders. My daughter is autistic -PDDNOS- and also has sensory issues. She used to run and slam into the kitchen cabinets or slam into my hubby and me. She also used to jump off the couches or off of anything else she could climb up on without us noticing. LOL She also used to be a much pickier eater and wouldn't eat anything gummy, like gummy worms, etc. She's starting to now, though.

Your input on the subject is really a good one. I don't think that this is it though. All taht i guess i can do is hope that she don't get worst as she ages. I will think about taking her in though now!

She must learn that the things she does that is wrong that there is consequences. There will be something that she likes, remove it obviously stating the wrong she has done and how to get it back. Limits are what we all live by and you must instill in her the respect for those limits or she will have a tough time when older. Starting young is ever so much more easier than when older. Could offer her classes in something like dare devil type and if she is good then she can go to those classes. Just some thoughts. I never put up with such activites, once was enough and they got the message. They are pretty good kids now and thankfully so, since I must work outside the home and need to know they are doing what they are supposed to!! Good luck, be consistent and stand your ground. You are the adult!!

Yes and to be completely honest with you she does get her fair share of disipline. I put my foot down with her all of the time. She is still very defiant and it gets stressful at times. I will continue to stand my ground though by the way great advice!
