The Terrible 3's.....Basically try & re-direct her attention. If that doesn't work then ignore it. If she sees a rise out of you when she does it then that's her way of getting your attention. If it happens when you are out in public then you leave wherever you are. If she continues it then she stays home until she can act like a big girl & be good in public. That's what I did/do now. When my Son was that age, I just shopped at night when his Dad was home to watch him. I made him understand it was a privilege to go out with Mommy & Daddy & it was only going to happen if he behaved. My Daughter is 2 & hasn't started that behavior as of yet.

What ever technique you use it will not work overnight, be very consistent and never give in. My kid started to whine a bit around that age so I would say sorry what was that I can't understand what your saying when you use that voice. Please use normal voices and I would ignore her or repeat that sentence until she spoke to me in a normal tone. Also be-careful how much sugar you give the child switch juice to water.
