  • Keep up with the ignoring. Throwing a tantrum isnt going to hurt her. If she goes for an hour, you have a pretty stubborn But I stil lwouldnt give in. Even at this young age, its a power struggle. You have to decide is she going to be in control or are you? Giving in is SO counterproductive and the next time you try ignoring, she'll go longer, knowing that you'll eventually give in. I have 5 children, and the only thing that worked for me at this age is ignoring them. When they realize that the tantrum isnt going to achieve what they want, they will stop. Would you rather get it under control now or have her throw one of those hour long tantrums in a public place at 2 or 3 because you told her she couldnt have something? I know its hard, but it really is for the best.

    Good luck :)

  • time for time outs and also don't give her the attenion till she calms down and talk/asks nicely. invest in ear plugs hopefully it'll get better by the time she's older goodluck

  • Seeing she is only 1, I would NOT spank her. Instead, make sure she is safe and IGNORE then tantrums. At this age, it is done for attention or because she can't verbalize her wants, needs or feelings.

  • at one, you walk away and ignore it then give possitive attentiuon and reinforment right after she stops.

  • I would put my 1 year old in his crib for a few minutes, and that helped a little. Now I walk away and won't look at him until he stops. It takes a few minutes, but he stops!
