Is it normal for 3 year olds to experience this extreme rage? for instance she threw up tonight, and then just lost it, bit DH twice, throwing things knocking things over screaming, throwing herself around, just about inconsolable. What have you done to help tone down this rage/biting/scratching/hitting. Of course shes perfect for everyone else, mostly she does this with just me? what can i do to help her?Answer Question

Extreme rage in a tree year old is normal to an extent. Kids at this age are working on developing emotional regulation so it's not abnormal for a child to experience strong emotions and not know how to handle them.
Do teach her how to control her rage by not getting out of control yourself and by letting her know that her emotions are appropriate but her behavior is not. I tell my son " It's O.K. to feel angry, but hitting and biting is not O.K., so when you hit and bite you will go to your room." It should start to kind of drop off over the next year. If it does not you might want to see a doctor about it
