My eldest tried that about that age, not just screaming & kicking, but throwing things etc. I just grabbed her clothes and all and stuck her in the cold shower, cooled her down literally. Once she had calmed down, a matter of seconds, took her out dried her off and explained that if she couldn't control herself and cool herself down I would have to do it for her. She tried it 3 times, and got the point! Lasted all of a week. Might sound mean to some, but that fact is that in life, as an older child or adult, people aren't just going to wait around for you to learn self control, and I figured it was a harmless, non spanking solution that was still shocking enough that she got the point.
