My 2 1/2 year old daughter constantly screams about everything. Example: if she spills all of her toys out of her toy box onto the floor, my husband and I ask her to pick up her toys and to put them back where they belong. It follows with her screaming at the top of her lungs the whole entire time she's picking up her toys and putting them back. She screams in general a lot of the time too, while we're walking in the store, going out the door and walking to the car, watching a show on tv, sitting and eating a meal. She's super destructive too. We've replaced shades in the house because she breaks them and tears them apart, constantly rips paper and scatters it all over the house, breaks furniture (she recently broke her toddler bed), slaps our tv, tries to pull on the dogs tail, etc. I'm just at my wits end and don't know what to do. We try and get her to use her indoor voice, time outs, taking toys away and tv time. We try and spend one on one time with her while her baby brother sleeps, any advice would be very helpful.
