I have a 4yo granddaughter who is causing me some concern. Whenever she does anything wrong, she is told off and then cries which of course is perfectly normal but after 20 seconds or so the crying develops into screams lasting around 5 or more minutes. Her mother says it comes and goes and just leaves her daughter to cry until she finally stops although her father, my son, tells his daughter to stop and almost immediately she does! I believe something may be wrong but am at a loss to know exactly what. Is it possible she has some mental disorder or is highly strung and probably needs medication to calm her down? Your advice would be welcome.
