My daughter, who is 18 months, will start crying and following me around so I pick her up and she will try to hit me. I get on to her and put her down and she will go over to her toys and start throwing them. I've tried telling her to stop and talking stern to her but she just gets worse. I've tried ignoring her. She will get so mad she will try throwing her rocking horse that is as big as she is. What can I do? She acts like she wants me to hold her or play with her but when I try that she keeps crying and tries to hit or push me away.
She does this after she wakes up from her nap. It only last about 5-10 mins but the whining is every few mins. I've changed her bedtime and nap time and it only helped a little. I'm getting so stressed from all the screaming. HELP!!!

well i hate to tell you but toddlers go through stages just like teenagers too.. I would tell her no and move her away for the spot where she is throwing things and keep doing that.. my son is 13months and when i tell him no and move him away for the spot he gets mad but he knows what no means... It will be ok she will get over this stage..
