Do your daughter and yourself a favor and get out of the house on a regular basis, it will help calm your nerves, even IF YOU DON'T FEEL LIKE IT do it anyway! Go to the mall or volunteer at church hang out with friends look up local moms. You will have less incidents where you regret overreacting.

At a year and a half old your daughter is far too young to understand why she needed to be quiet so you shouldn't have punished her. Young children are very empathic and she was crying because she could sense YOUR unease which frightened her.
