  • My dd is also a sweet little girl one min and then this crazy little thing the next. She was hitting, which I do not tollerate, she get's timeouts or I put her down away from where me and the other kids are tell her a firm, no hitting and continue on with whatever I was doing. When she is having fits I just walk away from her. This is difficult when she does this walking back from the park when I have other kids with me also. I have been know to pick her up, put her under my arm so I'm not cuddling her, no rewards for poor behaviour. Once we are home I will sit her down and continue on with the other kids. We were out for a walk one day and she threw a fit. I was able to sit down on the grass with the other kids, we talked and goofed. When she was done she came over and said sorry and got a snuggle.
    Try getting her out for a walk every day or to the park where she can interact with other children.

  • Read "Raising Our Children, Raising Ourselves" it might help.

  • Umm, all I have to say is, rewarding her with a pacifier when she's having a tantrum is NOT the way to go about things.

  • Does she get any sort of punishment for kicking, screaming & hitting you? Especially the hitting! If she's almost 2, then she's close to the time out age (or at it). DS is only 2 & if he hits me, he gets 1 warning & if he does it again, he goes in time out for 2 minutes. It does help. And consistency is key!!!

  • Take her on walks everyday. It'll benefit the both of you.

  • I have just started sending my 23 mo to her room when she goes into meltdown mode. If she comes out still screaming I send her back and tell her to come out when she has calmed down. It usually takes a few minutes but she is getting the hang of it. I would make sure that you find a form of punishment to use for the hitting, kicking and screaming so that she knows that it is unacceptable behavior. You have to stick with that form for a few day to a few weeks to decide whether it is going to work. I wish you luck and we hare having the terrible and angel days as well.
