Looking to see if other moms of March 2008 babies are experiencing the same things I am. My duaghter is just past two (obviously), but my problem has been getting increasingly worse since she was one. Right after her 1st birthday, it was like a switch went off for the bad behavior. Constantly bad behavior and her tantrums were BAD! At one year old, she was throwing herself and banging her head and all the stuff most parents don't see fully until their kid turns 2.
Now that my daughter is 2 years old, it's just getting worse. We have daily, and most days multiple screaming/throwing temper tantrums over the stupidest things. They seem beyond any "terrible two" kind of trantrums and we're really not sure what to do. Nothing seems to curb the behavior. Time out, time in room, NOTHING. We're kind of at our wits end with the discipline aspect and running out of ideas.
Does anyone else have a very violently filled temper tantrum toddler. One that throws themself anytime they don't get their way. I know my daughter is very strong willed and she doesn't back down for anything, which I think is a big part of the problem. She's also developed a mean bossy streak which we've been workign on curbing in day care with sharing and learning to get along with other kids.
Anyone have any idea? Discipline idea? Sanity ideas/ Is this craziness normal?
