My 6 year old daughter is so bad. When something isn't going her way or changes in a way she doesn't like she falls apart. Seriously screaming, punching, calling names. It is indescribable how quickly she can go from fine to infant tantrum. I know that this is probably because she has had positive feedback in the past to this behavior. My husband is the worst, she will barely start to whine and he gives in immediately. I don't know what to do for her. This behavior is hurting her. I cant go to a store or a restaurant or even a ball game without her ruining it for one or all of us. For example, Last night we were at my oldest daughters softball game which my husband coaches and she decided that she wanted him to hold her. I explained that he was on the field and he couldn't. she started with the crying and I took her to the bathroom and tried to talk her down, but she got more up set and more up set. So I took her to the car with her screaming at me the whole way "I want daddy". I put her in the car and had to stand out side the car and listen to her scream at the top of her lungs for 45 minutes. Missing my daughters whole game. This is a common occurance. I was so embarrassed. Any advice would be greatly appreciated even if I am doing something wrong. I need to fix this for her and the rest of us. I am seriously at my witts end.
