So, you don’t say what you’re doing about it, besides nothing. What’s so bad about what she’s doing? Other than the fact you need to clean your window SILL, not seal.

What’s the problem with her climbing on the radiator? Can she get hurt? Can it get messed up? Why is talking to her friends a bad thing? If you have a legit reason for her not to do something explain it to her. If not then you’re just an adult in her life that bosses around for no reason. Kids block that out because they want/need to be independent. If the only problem here is a dirty window sill then teach her to clean it. Give her a blanket or cushion to sit on. Teach her how to do things better.

Could she invite her friends into her room through the front door? I’d ask the parents first. Sounds like a social butterfly that just wants to hang out with her friends. I’d express that it’s dangerous for her to be doing that and offer a solution. Kids don’t want to be bad …she’s 7. For every problem there is a solution.

My kids love sitting in the windowsill, but maybe you could tell her to go play with her friends outside, let her know that the radiator can be hot and could hurt her, let the doctor know of your concerns about her behaviour and see if you can get her in to see a behavioural therapist if she needs it

Why don’t you build her a window seat if the space can accommodate for it? It can double as a radiator cover. Just make sure it has slats in the top to let the heat rise.

I don’t want my kids sitting on the window sill either it’s an accident waiting to happen.

I bollock them every time they do & make them get down and tell them how dangerous it is. There’s literally not much else apart from keeping an extra eye when they’re upstairs or locking the windows.
Could your daughter just be wanting to be more social maybe? I don’t know what your neighbours are like but my kids are always wanting to see what everyone else is doing and be involved in some way, luckily for us they’re the same age as our neighbour and have fun playing with them xx

Start with getting her professional help. If she has behavior problems she needs therapy and probably psychiatry. However maybe build something over it that she can climb on or rearrange her room. To be honest sounds like she’s a normal kid though.

I always explain worse case scenario to my kids. I had to explain if my 5 yr old falls out with the air conditioner she don’t come back. Life is not a video game. Sometimes kids don’t understand the consequences of those actions going wrong because so many of their movies have happy endings they don’t see people dealing with real life reprucussions

It’s the age. My daughter just turned 9, but for the last year or so, we’ve had issues with her cutting her own hair, cutting holes in her clothes, cutting Barbies hair. Her room is right off of our deck and she will open the windows and climb in and out of them (never at night or like sneaking out - when she wants to go play outside, she will climb out the window instead of using the door :roll_eyes:). My son went through the same stuff around the same age. If you’re that concerned about it, I would move a book shelf or a tall piece of furniture in front of the window.

What you describe doesn’t sound like she has behavior issues, sounds more like she’s trying to make friends with the neighbor kids, and trying to get attention that’s what kids do!!

She could break bones and that would hurt.

Nail window shut if it’s a safety issue, other than that, lighten up. You probably make her organize her own clothes by color and style as well as her toys. Poor girl! She’s going to be rebellious as hell if you don’t give her a chance to be a kid. Let her go play with the other kids!

In parenthood you will learn not to sweat the small stuff. You probably need to learn that now. Ask yourself some questions. Is it hurting herself, is it hurting others, is it destroying property. If the answer is no. Then what is the big deal. If you make everything an issue, she won’t know when to really listen to you. It will get to the point we’re she won’t even hear you. Best of luck.

My 7yo is a climber and climbs EVERYTHING. I would find ways to redirect the climbing and meet this need.
I tell my son I am concerned he can fall out the window and that helps. I tell him we can go outside and talk to our friends.
I don’t think you can safely put things over a radiator.

This is pretty typical 7yo behavior. They test test, and just need to redirect and meet the need she is craving.

Does she have troubles in school? It doesn’t seem like it’s a medical behavior issue especially if she’s able to focus & be obedient in school.

She wants to sit on her windowsill and that’s the only way she can get up there is by climbing on the radiator… so why don’t you improvise and make her something to where she can stare out the window. It sounds like she wants to be social. If your 7 year old only has those problems, you should feel blessed. Always doing something she shouldn’t, :rofl: Lord have mercy, she’s 7, she’s learning, she doesn’t entirely know right from wrong. You can’t expect someone to follow all the rules, especially when they’re a child. Do you follow every rule there is? Probably not.

What…she’s not not allowed to talk to the neighbors kids? Let her go outside maybe she wouldn’t be sitting in her window, she sounds lonely…

So I feel this is worded kinda bad. The dirtyness- she’s a child, she’s 7 show her how to clean some stuff if it’s bothering you that much. However, her just sitting on it is not an issue UNLESS the radiator is hot. In that case definitely don’t let her sit on it if yall are using it because some radiators produce enough heat that it could cause harm but if it’s summer wherever you are and it’s not on at all I wouldn’t be so uptight about it. Or get her something to sit on idk why this just sounds like someone who’s uptight to me though. Also why does she have to talk to them out the window ??? Why aren’t u letting her outside to talk to them or interact with other people, this whole post giving me bad vibes.

I’m so confused why that’s a problem unless it’s like really high so it’s a safety issue… If that was the case they make things you can buy to lock your windows shut (I saw some mention nailing it shut and please never nail a window shut, in case of emergency or fire you need to be able to still open it)

You are being way to controlling to your kid. She doesn’t have a behavior problem, you have a behavior problem. You are making a mountain out of a mole hill and throwing out dangerous statements to a label a child because you are being controlling.

Normal to not do what your told and as they get older it gets out of control. The parents now a days let them say and do whatever they want because they are to lazy and easier to let them run free! That’s why this country is so screwed up and kids are out of control and killing and hurting people!

She’s talking to kids… unless these kids are potentially dangerous or a lot older I’d say let her be. She isn’t running away or anything. And if that’s what you consider behavior issues then you are the one who needs help.

Does your daughter ever get to play with those kids? Maybe she’s lonely. I’m concerned about her burning herself this fall and winter, forgetting that the radiator will be hot that first time. I know you don’t want her to sit on the window SILL. Falling out the window would not be a good thing to happen whether it’s ground floor or not. I would think the best thing to do would be that when her friends contact her through the window, she should come to you and ask if she can go out and play. If she gets up and sits on the window sill, she has to stand in the corner. Then she has to clean the window sill. That should solve the problem.

Is there something you can put over the radiator or block the window to keep her from wanting to climb over the radiator. Maybe explain to her why you don’t want her climbing on it. Sometimes just sitting down with the child and explaining why it’s not good for them to do something helps the situation.

Now I believe what people say about you is true. are indeed a woman of your words, you have changed life including mine thanks for your kindness Mrs Olgusya

What is this problem here? I ain’t tryin to be a jerk here just tryin to understand.

Thank you Olgusya, you are legit your company is the best my dreams come true

Since i started investing in bitcoin, it has been were scammed in one way or the other and I why? Investing in bitcoin has been so profitable to me. So i think introducing you to Mrs Olgusya Gribova will be the best thing in my life

I don’t think you can consider this a behavioral problem if this is the worst example you have. However my concern is that if she can get that window open so easily anyone can get in really. I mean you didn’t say if you were on ground level or not but if so I’d be worried about child predators. Maybe just have a discussion with her about safety and making sure she locks her window at night and tell her she can invite her friends in the play instead of talking throught the window.

If It really is quite a few instances get a psych eval! Our daughter was making herself throw up every day. Took for a psych eval and she has ODD. ADHD. AND incredible smarts. She thought if she threw up it would keep both parents home from work turns out xD

Can you put a baby gate in the window? I have them in every window in my house because of the radiators. My son is 3 and don’t have no sense of danger.

Good lord, she’s a 7 year old . Just keep reminding her . I don’t think it is that drastic, you have to run to a doctor :thinking:
