When she is not getting what she wants even if it a toy tats frustrating her she does this horrible high pitched scream. She won't nap. She won't sleep she's exhausted. For my sanity I need her to nap for a break. I can't eat go to the bathroom anything without her screaming at something. She pinches me pulls my hair screams bloody murder in my ears. She refuses to sleep no matter how tired she is. What can I do? Can I teach her now this behavior is bad? How can I get her to go to sleep and stop being so damn feisty! HELP!!!!

that sounds like something is wrong to me. Make an appt with her doctor. That way medical things can be ruled out and you can get referred to a therapist that can help with sleep training. At that age though you can't really teach behaviour is bad because the child won't understand and is trying to communicate a need. It is the wrong way of communicating but that can't be dealt with until the child is older and understands no.
