my daughters temper scares me.

Posted by Anonymous   + Show Post
It's true. She's 23 months old and since she was 4.5 months she's been throwing god awful tantrums. She will bang her head on the floor, throw herself backwards and then just flail about. She has injured herself several times and doesn't care. When she's super mad she throws things and gets so upset its scary. I dont know what to do with her. I worry that she might have some kind of issue and we don't see it. She doesn't like eye contact when she's freaking out and her fits can last two hours.

Does anyone have advice for us? This has been addressed with her doctor but not recently. Her pediatrician said it might be just a stage.

my son went through that for a long time. it improved drastically when he could communicate better. i mean it was to the point we were suspecting autism and bipolar disorder. it was bad. but hes four now and has outgrown it completely. we just focused on communication and patience patience patience. good luck mama.
