you can't ;) Although it seems like your child is on 'your level' she's not and expecting her to control anger and frustration this early just isn't realistic. Redirection or just plain letting her have it out is fine.

You may want to read Harvey Karp's book. "The Happiest Toddler on the Block" His techniques are very effective. I used his approaches with my second and third child and we had a smoother toddler period than with my first. I wish I had read it earlier.

You have to watch Super Nanny cause i think she is so good. You really have to do tough love on them and show them you are the one in control not them. Cause at this time she know she will get away with stuff by screaming.

Give him two options that you are comfortable and happy with, you can either be out here with mommy or go take a time out for 12 seconds. If he is too dramatic, he needs a time out. Tae a breather, relax for a moment and then pick him up and show him affection. Distract his attention and don't forget to tell him that his behavior is unacceptable and he can only act out like that in his room alone, not with the family. Hope this helps.

I work in a Montessori Day Care Center. I also have a CDA(child developement associate). Any way as part of my job we are not allowed to even use time out. So what have do is talk to the child. Saying things like you may not yell; If you are going to cry you can go to our soft spot;Ask the child can you tell me what is wrong? These are just a few of the thngs we do. But basically is all in how you talk to the child and redirect them, provide things for them to do that interests them. And without a doubt you have to be consistent and patient.
