It isn't the age. Either something is wrong with your parenting, or something is wrong with your child.

You're still at the easy age. Three is when they start getting mouthy and have enough words and understanding to express dislike, but not enough words to do it without kicking and screaming.

You are giving her access to the house to destroy. Stop doing that. You are reinforcing it by keeping everything she throws around within her reach to throw.

Quoting 2ltlmonkeyz:


i think once she is older and can understand punishment time out will work, it's just this age .

Quoting BEXi:

oh lawd.. if you think shes bad now, wait two years. if you keep up like that, youre in for a treat! LOL

Quoting 2ltlmonkeyz:


usually i just sit and watch her terrorize until she falls asleep but tonight she is particularly bad !

So you reinforce her for the behaviour because it's too much work to keep all the stuff that keeps her awake off the ground?

no i think if the stuff was not there for her to throw she would find something else to do to keep herself awake , for instance she is now laying in the floor shaking her head back and fourth and sqealing she does whatever to keep herself awake.

Time outs. Over and over and over. Don't give up. Why the hell would u just let the kid terrorize the house. Come on. That's a dumb way of thinking..

Bc it just gets to the point where after she has screamed for so long it's like whatever keeps her quiet until she is ready to go to sleep !

for as long as i have had kids who can walk and throw fits, my reaction has been "thats not nice behaviour! it is not nice to make messes, you need to calm down" *give a min for them to calm down, or if not then "ok buddy time out until you can be a nice boy" and in a time out they go. 

and if that doesnt work, then nippy nappy time!!
