She has been awful the last two weeks. I am at my witts end. My nerves are totally shot. She is three and a half.
Example: tonight, we made dinner, she was playing. She had a huge mess in the living room with her toys qhile i was cooking. She brought me a game and asked me to play. I told her if she picked up her toys while I did the dishes we would play. We sang our clean up song and she eagerly picked up about three toys. Then she came into the kitchen whining about the game. i remnided her if she picked up her toys we would play. She fell on the ground screaming and kicking. I picked her up and put her in time out. The whole time she screamed and refused tk stay in time out. She was flopping on the floor and started throwing toys. I spanked her, which was competely ineffective. She was still.screaming about that damn game. I told her no, if she was going to act like that it was bed time. I went into her room to get her pjs and she dumped my drink on the floor and took her arm and cleared off the table.
I just picked her up and put her in bed. She spent the next hour destroying her room and screaming bloodly murder. I went in there and told her multiple times to lay down. I laid her down, I out her in time out.
I just dont know what to do. Time outs, talking to her, taking toys, spanking etc, none of it phases her. These fits can last for two or three hours nefore she finally passes out. Ive always been very consistent with her in discipline. There haven't been any major changes. Whej she's acting grumpy I give her tyenol in case she doesn't feel good.
I just need a break. I can't deal with this anymore!!
