A will be 5 in August and I can't decide if she maybe has a hearing problem or if she's just ignoring me. She is a very airy fairy girlie girl. Gets totally caught up in what's she's doing, so much so that I feel like I am constantly shouting on her/at her.
I can repeat myself 5 times before she does what I'm asking. For example this morning she was sitting at the table having finished her breakfast, I shouted from the kitchen (attached to dining room) for her to bring dishes through. 4 times I said it before she acknowledged me. The same when it came to putting her shoes on.
Sometimes I think she is just ignoring me but then other times she miss hears, repeats words back to me that sound similar to what I said to her. It's so frustrating but I can't decide if its her hearing or just mischief.
Would you bother the GP with this? Do they get a hearing test in school?
Does anyone have a similar problem with a 4/5 year old?
