My little one skipped the terrible 2s, but is experiencing the terrible 3s (some of it stemming from a bad influence that is no longer in her life). Screams in my face when she doesn't get her way, attempts to fight her way out of time out (which I don't actually let her out), and fights me at nap time. Our daily routine is about the same everyday, just various activities, but the same time slot. I reward and complement when she does good, and reminds her of time out when she does bad. I also like to explain why the behavior is bad, but it doesn't matter. I find myself getting so frustrated and angry at times that my blood boils. Any suggestions?
