I was talking to a lady yesterday at the library. We were talking about our kids. I told her my 18 month has started to throw fits. I try to redirect her but it doesn't work. If she doesn't get what she wants she just throws a tantrum and there is nothing I can do to console her. The lady I was speaking to told me that her daughter used to the same thing. When her daughter started to throw a fit she would strip her down and throw her in the shower and turn the cold water on until she stopped crying. She said it usually only took a few seconds. I just stood there with my mouth and eyes open wide. I couldn't believe anyone would do that to an 18 month old. Wtf?
