Question about Maladaptive DaydreamingMy daughter is daydreaming always, it never meant any problem but recently she doesnt hear when we talk to hear, one time she bumped into a door because she didnt see it, she was so inmersed in her thoughts. Should i be afraid or just let her outgrow it?
If it's really daydreaming then you should be able to distract her. If you can't distract her then it is possible she might have absence epilepsy which can be diagnosed from an electroencephalogram (EEG) which is a painless test. Many people with absence epilepsy grow out of it but some need medication. And many people daydream!
