My 2 1/2 year old does this too. I don't know what to do for it, because so far nothing I have done has worked...  I'm hoping it's a stage she will grow out of very soon.

Do you discipline at all? (I don't mean just spanking, but time-out, quiet time in her room) Do you give in and give her what she wants?

yes I discipline.  If she is screaming because she cant get her clothes on right of course I help her but if she screams over getting a toy taken away etc no she doesnt get it back just because she screamed.  her room isnt an option since it is next door to ours.

my dd does it and the only thing that works at home it alone time in the room. in public i  usually point out all the people that are looking at her and she stops.

WOW I DIDNT GO THREW THAT BUT MY 1 & A HALF YEAR OLD  IS STARTING TANTROMS AND I PUT HER ON A TIME OUT CHAIR. i KNOW IT IS HARD BUT U WILL HALF TO PUT HER ON THE TIME OUT CHAIR AND WALK AWAY IF SHE GETS OFF PUT HER ON AND TELL HER THIS IS UR TIME OUT. KEEP REPEATING THIS SHE WILL GET TIRED EVENTUALY. THIS WILL ONLY TAKE A COUPLE OF DAYS TILL SHE NOTICES YOU WONT TAKE IT ANYMORE. YOU WILL HAVE TO TELL HUBY THAT THIS IS THE ONLY WAY AND IT WILL ONLY BE FOR A COUPLE DAYS TILL SHE KNOWS HER LIMITS.  IF YOU PUT HER IN HER ROOM SHE THINKS THAT SHE CAN PLAY WITH HER STUFF AFTER HER TANTRUM AND THEN THEY THINK THEY CAN DO WHATEVER THEY WANT. MAKE SURE YOU PUT THE CHAIR WERE THERE IS NOTHING CLOSE TO IT, NOT EVEN BY THE TV.  HOPE THIS WORKS FOR YOU LET US KNOW OK!!! GOOD LUCK!
