  • You just handle it. Theres no real answer without knowing what shes doing specifically. If she throws tantrums the best thing is to ignore them. If she throws them in the store you walk out of the store and buy nothing and go home. If she has fits at home put her in her playpen or a corner and pretend shes not crying.
    Redirection is another way to handle it. When they start crying or wanting something you distract them with something else more appealing they can play with. You can also use time out at 2 yrs old its 2 minutes of time out. And beyond that alot of tylenol for you and maybe some ear plugs.
