Hi there, I have a beautiful four and a half year old daughter. Most of the time she's a dream, a pleasure to be around, wanting to help, good manners etc.... BUT....... sometimes (in fairness, not all the time) if she doesn't get her own way, or tries to do something I tell her she shouldn't do, she starts off with the usual "I don't want to" or "that's not fair", but then if I put my foot down, she all out screams at me. Now I don't mean a tantrum screach, I mean a full blown, red faced scream!! If I put her up to her room for a 'time out', all she does is throw things at the door, demanding to know when she can come out. Now, eventually she does calm down and say sorry, but if later on that day something else comes up, and I remind her that she could end up en her room again, it doesn't phase her at all, and it starts all over again!!! I also have a two year old girl as well, and she's starting to mimic her big sis. (obviously she doesn't know what she's screaming for, but I don't want her copping on). There's no apparant jealously towards her little sis or anything like that. (coz that's what I thought it was origionally) so I'm at a loss. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.
