It's been going on for a couple of weeks. If she doesn't get her way, she screams and cries like I'm trying to murder her. Today she decided she wasn't going to take a nap. She screamed for at least 20 minutes before I allowed her to get out of her crib. Her dad was visiting today, so he let her watch cartoons in the living room while I took a much-needed nap. At the grocery store tonight, she had a fit because I wouldn't buy her an Auntie Anne's pretzel. She refused to eat dinner. Everything is NO NO NO!! I can't take this anymore. I feel like I don't like her at times, and it makes me worried. I love her, but sometimes I just want to walk away.
Can you help me?

Discipline is something that should be started right now, in my opinon. Whatever discipline you decide, you are the parent. She needs to know that this behavior is unacceptable and will no longer happen. Google Super Nanny, she has great tricks on parenting that you might find useful. And don't be so hard on yourself. Take a breather, whoooosawwwwwww.
