  • I have a 17mo testing the limits right now and I get the throwing the body on the floor, kicking and screaming fits in the middle of the store. I let her have a moment and I try to get her to listen to me by getting down on her level and tell her to look at me and when I have her attention I explain to her what she is going to do. Seems to calm her when I use a calm voice... but thats my kid... my sister tried the same with her DD and it never worked. Different kids. Good luck momma, just know that we feel for you
