Your child cannot really have a temperature unless she is ill. She may get so angry that she her face may appear to be flushed. She is rather old to be having these anger episodes. She seems to be unhappy. Is there something that you know that is worrying her? I am rather concerned about her behaviour. She will have a difficult time at school if she behaves like this at school.It would be best to ask a child psychologist for an opinion on your daughter's behaviour.
