I am seriously beginning to think there is something wrong with my child. If she gets frustrated or mad about something she will, scream, throw herself on the floor (normal I know) and then viciously bang her head against the floor/wall/chair/appliance whatever she's close to, and then she will bite at whatever too. It's disturbing.
I also don't know how to discipline my kid at all. Nothing works. Rewarding good behavior doesn't work, ignoring bad behavior doesn't work. I've tried everything. I remove her from whatever and tell her no, but it never does any good. As soon as my back is turned or she thinks I'm not watching she goes right back to it. And you aren't going to convince me that she doesn't understand, because she absolutely knows that she is not supposed to eat rocks in the yard, play in the dogs' water bowl, climb on the kitchen table etc. She doesn't do it when she knows we are watching. We catch her sneaking over when she thinks we aren't paying attention.
I'll admit that I've yelled at her, and it works in the moment, but I think it sends a bad message and I don't want to be that kind of parent. I have to say though, when I have told her a hundred times and she refuses to listen it gets a bit hard to control my own temper sometimes. Then there's the massive guilt that immediately follows.
