Please help i don't know what to do. I am currently having major problems with my child. If we go into a shop / mall / cafe etc and she doesn't get what she wants like a toy or a sweet etc, she will have huge tantrums and start hitting me till the point where it is so hard that it hurts tell her that it is wrong hitting people, and remain calm if people ask I just say she wanted something and I have said no. We were in a petrol station the other day, and she came in with me and wanted a magazine. i said no, and right then she hit my back and everyone saw. This lady then came up to me and tried to give her a cookie to calm her down, and started asking me all these questions about her, like school, age etc.
Its not like this all the time, only when she wants something. I am parenting alone, and feel that i am a failure when she is like this. i feel that i can't talk to anyone else about this, as all her friends are at school. Please help.
She is not like this all the time, she is a very beautiful clever girl, sporty and very intelligent.
