Oh man, Addison now takes the cake for tantrum thrower in our house! This weekend she started throwing some MAJOR tantrums. No joke, they will last 15-20 minutes. And there is NO calming her down. She will throw at least one of these a day. And of course one first thing in the morning when I am trying to get them both ready for daycare. I read somewhere that the average tantrum lasts only 3-5 minutes. Do any of your LOs have VERY long tantrums? On Sunday she screamed for so long and so hard that she put herself to sleep... in the middle of the day! I don't know what to do with her. She arches her back, kicks, screams, yells if you are near her, yells if you leave her. And the big thing, she pees when she does it. Do you think she just looses control of her bladder, or that she is doing it on purpose? Ugh, I so hope this passes soon.
And it's the littlest things that throw her off. Like today she wanted the brown and pink shirt, so I put the black and red shirt on Brooke. As soon as I started to put the shirt on Brooke she starts yelling "RED RED RED". I try to give her choices so she feels she is in control, but that almost makes it worst. Any tips?
