she is a great little girl and very intelligent when it comes to things that sSHE feels like doing. but when she doesnt get what she wants, she throws herself on the floor and kicks and screams, she hits her dad, she hits her sister (who is 6 yrsold) and she wont stop crying until she gets what she wants. it can last upto an hour and eventually i just pick her up and baby her because the crying really drives me crazy. my husband doesnt help also because as soon as she starts crying he would immediatly give her what she wants but when she hits him he yells at her then a few seconds later he apologises and kisses her! ..... i really dont know what to do anymore because this has happend in public and i dont beleive in spanking so please dont answer if thats what you are going to post....
ive tried speaking firmly, ignoring, and time-outs but its not working.... if i give her time out she gets up from her naughty chair.... any suggestions and how long should she be in time-out for??? HELP!
