Brief Answer:
It could be due to psychological problem.

Detailed Answer:
Hello dear,
Thanks for trusting hcm about your health care.
I have gone through your history and understand your concerns.
Sorry for such a long delay in my response.
As you describe your daughter problem, in my opinion you should meet some psychologist, as she might be suffering with some psychological problem.
If she feels like that,it could be due to sadism( a psychological problem related with behaviour).
Hope found useful, but you must consult with psychologist for the same.
Good luck.
