My 7 year old daughter is very negative at the moment, she uses the word hate a lot which I forbid in our house, she says she hates everything from little bumps in the end of her school socks, a bit of hair out of place when I’ve just brushed it, I’ve put something of hers in the wrong place, if her toast is cut the wrong way. The one that really worries me is she says she doesn’t think she has a pretty face. But other times she’s extremely happy. We have a five month old baby boy but she’s never shown any hate towards him, she just can’t get enough of him. She loves going to school and does really well. She’s been getting cranky for almost the past year but the past month or two have been terrible. I have no idea what to do. Any suggestions?
