Ok so since my LO started walking when she was around 13 months old she has also started throwing tantrums. They've progressively gotten worse and more frequent since that time.
Now she throws a fit when I put her in a shopping cart, walk in the door to our apartment, change her diaper, put her in her high chair, or try to stop her from doing any unsafe or unwanted behavior. She throws herself back, hits, screams at the top of her lungs, and even sometimes hits herself.
I've tried many different methods of handling these tantrums. I've tried putting her in a safe spot so she can work it out, putting her for mini 1-2 minute time outs in her play pen, speaking sternly to her using very basic words and nothing seems to be making a difference. I absolutely refuse to spank her or yell back at her because I feel that would be pointless, but I'm really at my wits end with her. I try my best to keep her to a schedule and to have plenty of time to run and play and I give her as much attention as I can. I realize that at this age of 18 months there is a language gap between us, which is probably part of the problem (she knows what she wants and I know what I want and the two don't work together).
Please could you help me with some suggestions!! Thanks!!
