Are you more upset because you don't want her to have too much juice or are you upset because she keeps spilling it? She is right though, she is a big girl and she is becoming more independent. She wants to be able to do things for herself. I would put the amount of juice you will let her have in one day in a container that is a little more easy for her to grip and pour. Show her how to pour properly and where she can pour (for easier clean up because accidents do happen). Once she has finished the juice in the container then explain to her that is it, she can have _______ (water, milk, etc) and have those in easy grip containers as well. Good Luck Momma!

"Don't get so upset, spills happen. Have her pour it at the table, or over the sink, or when she wants to pour it herself have some paper towels under her cup before starting."
That is what I do with my 3 year old. I give him opportunities to practice his new skills where a little spill won't become a big problem. If he wants to pour his juice, we do it together over the sink.
