I have a 3 1/2 year old daughter that is EXTREMELY strong-willed and independent. She seems to have a major temper-trantrum at least once a day. These tantrums involve kicking, screaming, hitting, pounding on things, and throwing things. Time outs don't work. Talking to her doesn't work. The only thing that seems to calm her down is locking her in her room. But even then sometimes it lasts for an hour or two. I'm at my wits end....I would welcome any suggestions from others that have been there and found something that works!
