Hyland's Calms is what I used for my son when he was like that. It works like a charm. "Hyland's Calms Tablets provide needed relief to symptoms related to nervousness, nervous exhaustion and stress." I found mine at the health food store. My son ate them like candy, they are 100% safe, non-habit forming. They taste sweet and can be used by children or adults.

When my daughter is throwing a tantrum, I send her to the bottom step and tell her she MUST sit there until she is ready to talk to me CALMLY and NICELY. then when she feels ready, she knows she can come talk to me about whatever is bothering her. no sense in trying to understand a SCREAMING child. Works for us.

how do you react to her tantrums? i say you should ignore her, kids at that age want attention, whether its positive or negative. so she may act like that to get attention from you. and you may be giving her plenty of attention but to her its not enough. so leave her in a safe place to throw her tantrum and ignore her. i would tell try to tell her that you will talk to her when she calms down but then walk away and ignore her. (unless she hurts herself)

We just took our 3 year old to a homeopath for similar issues. He sadi it was normal and that he was throwing these fits out of needing to control his surroundings, etc.

The recommendations that we were given was to IGNORE< IGNORE

Do you know why she screams. Have you asked her what's wrong. If my daughter is upset I try to talk her down. I hold her and talk to her and tell her "It's ok, It's ok, what's the matter" I've had panic attacks and someone there to talk to through it helps. You can also call her doctor to find out what they suggest.
