  • She's big enough for you to explain to her that what she is doing is wrong.

    Do it when she's NOT having a fit. Explain that she has the best tantrums you've ever seen, and such wonderful tantrums deserve a special place, and pick a place she must go to have them, that is safe, like her bed.

    Then, the next time she fits, tell her to go to her tantrum place. Without the attention a tantrum causes, it will soon burn itself out.

    A child doesn't really gain control over her emotions until the age of maybe... five. Read "the new parent power" by John Rosemond.

  • It's a normal part of being a two year old. Tantrums are normal. Find a safe place for her to "chill" when she's having a tantrum. This phase will pass. It's a little frustrating for us parents I know! :-)

    Yes, as lovingangels says, please read John Rosemond's book. Everything he writes is so smart and he makes sense!!!
