How to get my daughter to stop throwing random tantrums?

Recently we finally got a car to do stuff together but when I take my baby girl out with me and she don't get what she wants or if i try to put her back in her carseat she screams bloody murder. I am trying the time out thing and i am doing the ignoring thing but what else can I do. She sees me all day every day and doesn't interact with any kids her age. I don't let her in the yard cause i live in a bad neighborhood and when i take her to a park she can only do so much for her age. I would love for her to play with more kids her age. Sorry for going off the subject a little.

  • Only TIME will fix the "problem." Kids react strongly to things they want/don't want. Your daughter is normal.

    My son, now almost five, has had only one tantrum. My DD (21 months) is QUEEN tantrum. She speaks very well but sometimes gets frustrated when her words don't keep up with her emotions/wants/needs/feelings.

    If your child has a tantrum in public I think you will get kind looks from most Moms. We've all been there. Don't punish your daughter just to make strangers happy.

  • Oh no! She's not a "slow learner!" She's a normal toddler! Give her lots of hugs and kisses!

    My son didn't say much until he was two. Now he's five and sometimes I wonder how he can talk so much without taking a breath :) My dd is 21 months and is speaking in sentences very clearly. Each child is different.

    Your daughter is her own wonderful person. Please don't label her a "slow learner." She's just a small human right now...

  • The tantrums are just getting started. Not something you want to hear/read but true none the less.

  • would they get fewer if she actually spends more time with other kids?

  • And also - at this age she shouldn't be in the yard without you. That's a no-brainer.

    As for the carseat, most kids in the toddler age HATE carseats.

  • i wouldnt let her go out by herself. Also she isnt speaking much. Like words except for mom, dad, nana, and bath. I am trying to teach her more but i think she is a slow learner like me. I dont know she is my first and i am still learning.

  • Your daughter sounds completely normal. Frustrating but normal!
