SO my daughter is 3... and i thought 2 was bad!!! ha nothing on 3! if she doesn't get what she wants the second she wants it, or things are not done how she wants, and sometimes for what seems to us NO REASON! she go crazy, yells(ususally no words just screaming), kicks, throws herself on the floor, and for the first time today kicked me(RIGHT IN THE FACE)!!! NOT OKAY! so far for punishment we have tried a time out spot on the first floor, we finally have gotten her to stay but it doesn't change the behavior, we started making her go to her room, once she knows we are out of sight she is out of the bed messing around, i try to take away what she wants at the moment, for ex. if we are outside and she starts throughing a fit i will tell her to stop & if she does i tell her we i get to 3 we are going inside , i count, 9 times out of 10 the fit is still going so we go in, sometimes thats where it ends and when we get in she calms down or something the fit will go on for another 10-30 min and at that point i try to just ignore it. but with all this the fits still keep coming and i feel like i have lost control. i really don't want to spank, i don't want to raise my kids on fear but i am lost.... i know alot of kids go through this & part of it is just age and part if for attention ( her brother is 1) i try to make special time her ( craft time, weekly dance class) and it is frustrating that these fits never happen at school and almost never in public & when we are out, just at home! please help!!
