My granddaughter, almost 9, has always been very headstrong. 2.5 years ago her mother left my son. Her mother convinced her that my son was out to harm her. He has never hurt her but did pick her up and put her on her bed, etc. and my granddaughter claimed abuse. I was there and saw what happened more than once and it was not abuse. Anyway, my granddaughter has been physically attacking my son (her dad) and her brother. She will be totally good and pleasant and then, just like flipping a switch she is in a full-blown rage. She will tell him he can't do anything about it and she's right as the courts have said no physical punishment and if you put her in a room for time out, she starts to destroy things. She sees a psychologist and a psychiatrist. She is on Prozac, 1 tablet at night but I don't know the dose. It is a little higher than the minimum dose. The Drs say my son is blowing it out of proportion but I've seen it and he's not. She is out of control and getting worse. She has lost her friends at school. Her mother denies this is happening so the Drs think it is my son. Yesterday she got mad at her brother and was choking him to the point my son had to physically remove her. This made her angrier and she grabbed a pen and stabbed my son. We were planning on picking them up next week for a weeks visit at our home. We live 600 miles apart. I am now afraid to bring her. I am afraid for what she may do here but more afraid for the drive home with her dad. Any and all advice appreciated. I'm leaning towards not taking her.
