my 2 yr old refuses to lay down, take naps, eat, and when she does choose to eat its only maybe 2 times a day, go to bed, instead she just screams bloody murder, like someone is killing her or something, she has heard me and my brothers and their friends cuss and stuff and now she's doing it to, we watch what we say when we know shes around now. i dont know what to do anymore.
has anyone else had this problem? how did you handle it?
my kid is gonna be 3 in july and is acting like shes a freaking teenager or something.
im one of those people who wont hit their kid, so i dont spank her or anything, but i am seriously lost. i have no idea what to do.

When she screams tell her you can't understand her & to use her words to explain how she is feeling. I wouldn't worry if she doesn't eat each meal. When she is hungry she will eat. Don't give her snacks until she eats properly. Time outs are great too. A minute for each year....if she is over the 1/2 way mark then round up...so 2 1/2 would be a 3 minute time out. Something else when she has a temper tantrum put her in her room & tell her it is unacceptable to behave like this & when she feels better or calms down she can come out. Good Luck!
