Angry 5 1/2 yr old :(

I'm in desperate need of advice. SAHM of 4 kids....3 girls= G is 7, F is 5 1/2, H is 4 and our son N is 2. F is the most genuine, caring, free spirited little girl. She is also so angry and lashing out in a major way. The littlest thing (F, what would you like for snack), can set her off in a fit of rage...throwing things, kicking, hitting,screaming at the top of her lungs, screaming she hates everyone. As quickly as this starts, it stops. I'm worried she's going to hurt herself or others. Last week the rage was so bad, I've got bruises to prove it. I feel like I'm constantly walking on eggshells with her, afraid anything I say/do will set her off. We've tried positive discipline, spending quality time with just her, reward charts...nothing is working. It all started in April- her kindergarten teacher went on maternity leave & our cat died within two days of each other. The only thing that helps keep her calm is the tv. Has anyone else experienced this? Any suggestions/advise greatly appreciated

I would first talk to her dr. about this but it sounds like it is psycological I would see if you can get referred to a good child psycologist and get her some counseling she sounds like she is grieving and doesn't know how to deal with it.
