Suggest Treatment Maladaptive Behaviour.

Hi I am actually wanting some advise, My daughter at the age of 11 months old was not sleeping through the night or day, drs said this was normal, by the time she was 2 she would not wear pants that touched the ground, she is now nearly 9 and we are noticing that she will only wear certain clothes, is funny on her undies, sox, tops shoes ( have to be tight as tight can get, she struggles to sleep properly and is very heightened, she is a very active child and her mind is ALWAYS ticking over, she over thinks, she doesnt seem to understand that sometimes her behaviour is un acceptable and she fails to understand why she has been sent to her room, we have tried talking, removing things frm her room, grounding her etc and she doesnt seem faised by it at all, she seems to have no care of when she hurts others, she reacts when her siblings hurt her she will have a melt down we struggle for her to bath, brush teeth, go to dr dentist etc, it always ends in an arguement, she will not look for anything, eg school uniform
I am just wondering what you think and what you recommend, anything clinical for her she seems to flip out, we have 4 children and she is great at school ( although the teacher said she can talk and talk to anyone no matter how many times her moves her around the class room

What do I do we just want the best for her
She is great at school, she will make a scene anywhere and in front of anyone if she isnt getting whta she wants

Thanks i look forward to hearing from someone

HI
Thanks for using healthcare magic

I think, she has obedient defiant disorder and you should consult a child psychologist. She need proper behavioral therapy in form of positive and negative reinforcement. In therapy, gradually she would improve. It would not happen in a day, may be take months, so better be patient.

Thanks
