My daughter turned 2 in March..and since then, it's been non-stop fit throwing. I've tried everything from time outs, to ignoring, to spanking. NOTHING seems to work. I don't want to coddle her and pick her up all the time -- I don't want her to think that behavior is OK. I'm not sure what to do.
I feel ready to pull my hair out with the screaming and the "no" consistently. I want my baby back. I'm to the breaking point and I'm not sure what to do. The fits last for what seems to be a lifetime if I try to ignore it..and she's to the point where she's hitting, kicking and biting (me and herself.)
Anyone have any ideas?

At this age kids don't always have the skills to express their anger. Acknowledge that she is mad (ask her so she has to answer and acknowledge it and verbalize it rather than showing you physically) tell her you understand she is mad. If she continues, tell her you don't want to be around her when she is acting this way (put her in time out) then when she calms down praise her for doing so. Read books together about appropriate behavior...see some here http://www.cjkidz.com/parentsgrandparentsteachers.html (click on Temper tantrums/acting out)
