My daughter has been a crazy little person ever since she turned 3. She has been throwing the biggest fits and giving me hell. She was such a sweet kid and I'm about at my wits end.
Right now she is in her room screaming her head off because 20 minutes ago I told her that she couldn't watch a cartoon because she needed a bath and she started SCREAMING and grabbed a CD and chucked it across the room. I told her "That wasn't very nice, you need to go to your room and cool down" well it just escalated from there....she comes over shrieking at me and hitting me and I picked her up and took her to her room and she proceeded to scream louder and refused to sit on her bed.
So irritated me at this point closes her door. She was so angry she couldn't get the door open and was screaming like a demon child at this point and trying to open the door.
Well after 5 minutes she starts yelling "I'M GOING TO CUT YOUR FACE OFF" "OPEN THE DOOOOOOR" and I'm just standing there calmly saying "you cannot act like that, you need to cool off...come out when you are calm" and she's still struggling with the door so I open it for her...
She pushes the door shut as hard as she can and gets my finger caught in the door...I get it out and she keeps screaming and then repeatedly opens and slams the door for I'm not joking TEN MINUTES.
Then she came out screaming "I HATE YOU" which I have NEVER said in front of her so I have no clue how she picked that up. Went back to her room and slammed the door. Then came back out and pointed her little fingers at me like a gun and said "BAM BAM BAM" and then went back to her room again screaming.
It's going on 30 minutes now and she's still screaming.
What on Earth has gotten into her? What am I supposed to do?
