Is it a stage?

My DD2 has been having these episodes of just freaking out for no apparent reason. She'll be perfectly happy and all of the sudden something doesn't go the way she wants or something is out of place, or for no apparent reason, she starts crying and having a fit. I usually have to remove her from whatever activity is causing the freak-out and start her on a new activity, or just hold her. Is this a stage? Can I do something to help her get through it easier?

  • just a stage hun. (early terrible twos, lol). just remove her from the situation and find a quick replacement that calms her down.

  • It could be a stage, it might be something else. If you're worried, go see her ped.

  • My son was like that and still he struggles at times. but its life we all have diffrent thresholds and hav e to work on managing our emotions. forever so... i find kids grow out of things but u can see your toddler in your 15 yr old yrs later and see that we dont change too much lol. personality developes. remain calm set a good example and protect him from hurting himself. dont play into drama or negotiate with him when hes being a terrorist lol. it will get easier. whatever you do dont start yelling at a kid youll never stop if you start and they ll stop hearing you lol keep your humor .
