Whoever said that the 3's are worse than the 2's hit the nail on the head. We have a jekyll and hyde little girl here. Hailey can be the sweetest, most polite, funny, loving and well mannered child...but when she gets mad about something, she can turn into a raving lunatic! She gets so upset that she ends up not even remembering what she is crying about! I usually give her the choice of stopping crying, or going to her room to calm down. Not really a time out, but if she is hysterical I will sometimes close the door. If that happens, she will scream and throw herself against it. I don't go back in until she has at least stopped screaming ( usually she is still crying) and I always make sure she knows why she had to go to her room, and she has to apologize to me for her behaviour. But she will throw a fit over the stupidest things, and I know its just a power struggle.
Anyone else have temper tantrum issues?? Please tell me I'm not alone!
