bad attitude help.......

Iam a SAHM my daughter is turning 2 next month. I am at my breaking point with her...What do other moms do to get there toddlers to listeN? My daughter will run from me when I want to come here, when I pick her up she throws a fit in my arms and slaps me or pinches my cheeks. She tells me no, she screams. I go to the YMCA for my sanity and so she can get some interaction with other kids...recently we were invited to a BBQ at our friends and there were kids her age there. She didn't act very nicely she was pushing and pulling there hair. My daughter IS a very hyperactive lil one prolly more than others but I am so ashamed of her behavior I feel like I am doing my job ALL WRONG. I do dissaplain her when she acts out I have tried the spanking the gentle voice, the calming her down and then talking...the only thing that seems to work when i stick to it is the spanking and raising my voice at her.

  • You said she's very hyperactive.... ADHD, autism. Not saying she has those, just an idea.

  • i am going through something similar with my dd who is 22 months. Im hoping that its just the age! Maybe now that the weather is getting nicer we can all get our kids out to run off some of their negative energy! :)

  • I am going through this with my 13 month old but add in biting on top of it. Patience is the key! If I find something that works with us, I will let you know. Hang in there!
