My 3yr old daughter has some anger issues, throws things, stomps her foot and screams. She get really mad, I am not sure if it's just her being a toddler or something deeper. Can anyone help?

Anna i have the same problem with my 18mth old...I give him time out he has to realize that throwing a fit will not solve anthing or get him what he wants...I dont know if its deeper then just being in the terrible two's but I treat it as such until he can express himself better..good luck hun..Joannie

I can say that is just her way expressing her anger in a non verbal way. you might want to help her express her feelings verbally. I have to work on that with my 2 1/2 yr old son. it is easier said than done but if u work at it in the long run she will be able to communicate better

My son will do this when he get fusrtated.. He is 2 years old.. I know it is more so when he can't think of the right words to tell me something.. I take him a we sit down on the floor, couch or whatever, I in a very calm voice ask him whats wrong and we sit and he will try to tell me what is bothering him.. I also tell him the if he can not play nice with his toys that mommy will have to take them away for the day.. It has started to help.. ( we just started about 2 months ago) So it jsut takes time and lots of talking with them.. I would see if she can maybe tell you if some thing is upsetting her.. Hope this is helpful.. Ever want to just talk send a message.. Best wishes.. Take care..

My son did some of that, throwing things, hitting yelling, so we gave him a timeout every time he did and after a few timeouts he quit doing it so much. So the key was to stick to your guns and give a timeout every time and quickly they will learn not to do it anymore. I know sometimes its hard but this too shall pass!
