Ugh, I don't know how to deal with Owl's behavior, it seems like it's getting worse lately. She graduated from MH a couple weeks ago for the PTSD related stuff but these behaviors she's having have been persistent for awhile now. Please tell me it's not another thing to look into and that it's all age appropriate.
She picks battles over food every day (I walk away when she fights and praise when she isn't fighting, the vomiting has stopped but she still purposefully gags occasionally).
She is always in a bad mood unless we are around other people; she's playful and attention seeking, smiling and trying to be cute with others while keeping an eye on us for a reaction.
She whines/cries at everything we say to her.
She occasionally bites others, usually me.
She refuses to use words unless it's a learned phrase but will spontaneously use words with others or when she wants to get out of trouble - "Dada, no timeout" when I tell her to go to timeout.
She has started peeing her pants rather than going to the bathroom on her own or using words to say she has to go (this happens at the table and in a 3 minute timeout), she will, however, go to the bathroom on her own at night when we are asleep.
Owl has mild CP, doesn't meet the criteria for PTSD anymore, and is 3 years old. What say you board of vast knowledge?
