Child behaviour

My child is doing pretty well at school ( study and discipline both) but she is completely opposite at home. She bullied her siister who is 7 years elder to her. She shouts at her parents for any small or a stupid cause either. We also checked if she was bullied or scolded by any other child or even any teachèr, but could not find any. Pl suggest us if she needs any counseĺing. Thanks

Dear mam,
Children are extremely sensitive yet intelligent individuals. They understand and also get affected by averse behavior of others. They have a fragile self respect. As a parent, you have to treat both daughters equally. Teach your elder daughter to give equal respect to everyone, even her younger sibling. And teach your younger daughter to assert herself in front of others. Pls be careful that your elder daughter is not jealous or insecure because of younger daughter because the age gap is more. You will have to handle it tactfully.

Pls ensure that you dont take sides!

The kid doesn't require any counselling.  It's the parents who should know the reason for that. Hence if as parents they consult a Counsellor or a Psychologist and talk to them various situations and even ends in which she behaves, like that . Maybe they can get an Idea how to manage her after that.

She seems to be troubled by something. Since her behavior is normal at school and her anger is directed only towards family members, it appears that she is having some issues with others in the family. Don't panic, just show your love and concern towards her as ask her if she has any complaints. Being helpful and considerate without being judgemental may help her express her feelings.
