my friends DD is 5 and she does things that make me think its not normal behavior because i know for a fact my DS (4) would never do these things but I can only compare it to him. She draws on the floor and gets into her moms make-up and nail polish without asking and makes the biggest mess's.. and she never listens to her parents. I'm not sayng my kid is better but he hasn't done anything like thats sense he was 2 or 3. my son broke our 50in lcd a few days ago but only on accident lol. does your 5yr do things like that?

Yes. Could be that her parents don't discipline either.

There are a multitude of reasons why she is doing this.



Sounds like she is craving attention.

Quoting speaktruth2powr:" Who was supe

me and her mom were both there. the kit should have been put away but its been out on the table by the bathroom for months and DS never messes with it so i didnt think to put it up. we were in the living room. while they were playing in his room (by the bathroom lol) didn't think i had to watch a 5yr olds ever step lol i was soo wrong.

It's not stupid at all.



Sounds like she was cleaning things up....she didn't know it was going to clog your sink.

My ds would never do anything like that, but that's because he knows better and doesn't have a chance since I'm with him 24/7! But I know parents who let their children be "more independent" and I've seen it. Pretty normal, for an unsupervised child, wanting attention or just being 5!

the stuff sounds pretty normal. annoying, but normal. also, some kids are just different than others. some will do stuff like that, some won't. depends on their level of curiosity for the items they see around, i guess.

This!



I don't think that sounds like an abnormal child at all. Maybe one who hasn't been taught better but not abnormal.
