I don't knw what to do any more. She had another one tonight and it lasted almost an hour before she was calmed down. She is socially immature for her age and I just don't know if I'm a bad parent or if there is something medically wrong with her. Help! I don't know what to do.Answer Question
It is definately a phase my daughter was the same way she is still a drama queen I have just learned to ignore her (making sure she is ok as far as fed, bathed, comfortable etc .Â If you feel in your heart she is ok and she is just upset bc she is not getting her way...go to the next room and she will wonder hmm...where is mommy? She'll either calm down or she will go look for you. Just alittle bit longer she will grow out of it just hang in there. My daughter is 6 yrs. old and someitmes she has her moments and I tell her mommy is not going to listen to you if you don't act like a big girl and she'll say ok...boohoo I'll b a good girl and then we're both fine. GLThis is my drama queen right now...lol let's see how long that lasts...lol

Then she sounds a lot like me. (And I assure you, if that's the case, you can't spank it out of her. I mean, I saw where you weren't planning to, just saying it can't be done.) Check out this groupÂ http://www.cafemom.com/group/3741Â We don't get too much action, but there are posts you can check out and compare it to your daughter.Â It really wouldn't hurt ot look into it, for her sake.Â If nothing else, you can find find resources and tips to help her cope with her sensory issues, to cope with them and to get around some of them, if not over them.Â Sensory issues are sensory issues, no matter the root cause, and you can at least find help for that.Â

This may help too -- http://abcnews.go.com/Nightline/story?id=4177353&page=1 and there are links in the comments. This video is how I was able to find out what was wrong with me.
Those meltdowns are frustration and and an inability to fully communicate what's going on inside her and/or why what it's about matters so very much in the moment. It's very overwhelming and confusing for her, too. I still have them. And it's like some little part of me is in my head watching the whole thing thinking "WHAT are you DOING?" But it's like it's on a locked course, and until it burns out, it just doens't stop.
Good luck. Oh...I was adopted, too.
