My 4 yr old started getting very aggressive in the past month. She turned from a sweet, positive, bubbly child to s frustrated child. One moment she would play and talk to you and in the next instant she would start shouting at you. The aggression also escalates very quickly. From the moment she starts shouting I have to stop her and firmly tell her to stop at which point she sulks in a corner and tells me to leave her alone. If I am not in the vicinity when this starts for example when we visit my mother she will escalate the aggression to the point where she threw her plastic chair at my brother for no real reason at all.
2 weeks ago she hit another child through the face at school because according to her the child did not want to play with her.
I have considered taking her to a child psychologist but I am afraid I am making to big a deal out of it. 2-3 days would go by with no problem and she would be her old self and then out of the blue the aggression sets in.
Any suggestion what I should do?
