My daughter is a year and half. We have been together almost 24/7 since birth minus the few times that she has stayed with a sitter or friends. When she is with our friends alone, they all say how good she is and well mannered and for the most part she really is. For the last 5 months she has been getting worse and worse with temper tantrums. Everyone wants to blame it on her teething but it's DEFINETLY not that. I know this for a fact because she only acts out when she does not get her way. We are confined to our house because she will not 'allow' us to go anywhere and if we do take her somewhere we have to go like the grocery store she throws major tempur tantrums, hits herself, hits her face on the cart, screams, cries, tries to jump out of the car while is moving...I'm so stressed and don't know what to do. I try to discipline her and so does my husband but she just isn't improving. None of my family or friends has children who act like this so they can't really give any advice. I can tell you that I am nothing but a great mother, I never discipline with violence or screaming and I don't know what i'm doing wrong, or not doing that I should be doing. Any help? Does this eventually get better? Is this a normal tempermant?

We have this problem with my 2 year old grandDD. She is good with me alone. But when she is with her mom she has fits. I told my daughter it is the way she is raising her. That she allows her to have the fits. Every time my DD tries to discipline her she has a fit then my dd stops disciplining her.
