We went to the park about a week ago with DD1&DD2. DD1 got in a mood and walked and sat on a bench near a pond. (Still in sight) but I couldn't leave DD2 so I stayed with her. When DD2 got tired I brought her over to DD1 a frog was jumping around the edge of the pond. DD1 threw a stick at it, however it didn't go so she threw a rock. it hit it on the head and died. (DD2 didn't see luckily) so I got DD1&DD2 away quickly. DD1 tried to shrug it off but the last few nights she has woke up screaming and got into my bed. When I ask her what it's about she just shakes her head and mutters about the frog. IDK what to do? help?

Talk about it.

Why did she feel the need to through the rock at it - did she not realise what might happen? Talk her through the 'taking out your fury on other peolpe/things' issue. She obviously bothered about what she did and feels guilty, so this is a good chance to really go through the 'consequences of loosing your temper' stuff and help her see why we all need to learn control. Yes, knowing you killed a living thing is horrible - learn from it.
