  • I think all kids do from time to time. If she does it all the time, then you should investigate further.

  • stay calm and count to ten... do it now and be patient or you will get a 15 year old that throws tantrums and that is way worse!!

  • i have a 3 year old who doesn't listen ! LOL, she just started this tho, she always listened even when you do the count like "if i get to 3 your gonna go sit on time out 1...2..." & then she would always come to me but now it's just yelling at me & telling me no & rolling eyes & everything along with the screaming. But it comes with age, they don't call them the terrible 2's for nothin ! LOL but i've learned to just stay firm, with everything & when you say she's going to sit on time out or your going to take away a toy for bad behavior then DO IT ! or she'll walk all over you & do what SHE wants, & that includes screaming & throwing things. but hey, i'm in the same boat & learning as i go too ! :) so, GOOD LUCKK.
