My 17yr. old Daughter has been having a tantrum (literally) for over 2 hrs. I can't even tell you why anymore...she just won't stop screaming at the top of her lungs, pounding the floor, jumping up and down and throwing things. She says if she stops, then it will mean that I will win the argument...and she can't stand it if she thinks someone else is winning the argument. She won't let me leave my house. I've even tried locking myself in the bathroom to get away from her, but she broke the lock to get in. I've had to close all my windows because of her screaming, and I actually am surprised that someone hasn't called the Police yet. She is still hysterical...even as I type this. I can't get her to stop. She wants me to agree with her...but if I say I do (even though I don't) she doesn't believe me...so the tantrum continues. Any suggestion?
