the bad news is that this is going to last much longer than a week. the good news is, you can show her that you will not tolerate this behavior by inforcing time outs. my daughter would cry and scream and throw herself against the wall in times outs. but i would show her no attention in time out, and if she came out of the corner, or naughty spot, i would put her right back and tell her it is time out time. you may have to repeat the process a million times, but it does work after a while. i love super nanny and she teaches that time outs can be a great way to effectively discipline your child. now when my daughter gets out of control and hits or screams, we put her right in time out. she stays for 2 minutes or until she stops crying. so when she's done, she comes out and immediately apologizes after we talk. its hard at first to watch your child become a demon in the corner, but it does work!
