Hi my daughter, born october 2007 keeps having these major tantrums both during the day, at bedtime and during the night. She has only recently started doing this and she is fine when she stays or is looked after by by parents. She will scream at anything and everything ranging from not wanting to go to sleep, to there are flies in the room she is in, refusing to eat the food she is given or just asking or doing something she knows i will say no to.
she also has extreme mood swings, one second she is screaming hysterically the next she is laughing and has no idea that she has been naughty and screaming for over an hour!
I have tried every kind of punishment, praise and even ignoring it. i dont know what to do and no two days are the same. yesterday she was screaming most of the day and today she has only had a few screaming fits and as usual the bedtime fight, which we now walk away and have to ignore. I have a 17 month old son who shares the same room and i feel sorry for him, she never used to be like this, she would take herself off to bed and was almost an angel in the day.
PLEASE HELP!!!!!!! XX
