  • Stop letting her do it and stop giving her what she wants. Do NOT respond when she throws a tantrum. Tell her that when she is ready to be a big girl, you will talk to her. When she hits, remove her from the situation..time out. DO NOT hit her back, because she will think it's a game. Be consistent, be firm and stand by your actions.

  • agree with tyfry.......my dd did this with my dh....she would be good for me but always start acting up when dh came home...it got to where i dreaded that time of day....when she started getting mean and throwing fits, we'd put her in her room until she calmed down. it's so hard to say only keep them in there for a minute to every year of their age, because it doesn't work. choose your type of discipline, and be consistent about it. eventually she will get the picture and start settling down.
