How has a child that young been diagnosed with ADHD? Anyway, one of the best pieces of advice I ever got was: A child who is the most unlovable, needs love the most. Hug your upset toddler; let her know how much you love her and how sad both of you are when she does not behave. Help her to express herself with words, instead of screaming and crying.

My oldest does have ADHD and she definitely was a difficult toddler. I know guidelines say you can't diagnose ADHD until a child is older, but I also know signs can be present at a very early age. I think it's too soon to say for certain whether your child has ADHD or whether she is just a difficult toddler, but consistent parenting techniques can help either. I highly recommend trying Love & Logic. It worked great for my ADHD child as well as my two toddlers who I don't suspect have ADHD.
I also agree with rkoloms: "A child who is the most unlovable, needs love the most."
