you are katherine.. actually i am short tempered but i try to be patient and calm. I love my daughter very much, she is the world for me and i don't want to scold or slap her, never!! And i am very much agree to you that this is her learning period.. Thanx dear!!

It is always her fault that you must punish her and you make it clear.

I completely disagree with this statement! Two year olds are compulsive and are just learning. Mine is also 2.5 and I would never make her think everything is her fault.

You are supposed to teach them right from wrong but not fault them. It is a learning process. I always ignore the tantrums, they are just learning their sense of self. They DON'T listen. They say "No" it's normal. Every 2yo does it.

You have to be patient and calm. If she see's your stress, that will make her stress out more too.

Please do NOT fault her.

Been there, done that! Get a book called "Whose in Charge here". It really helped me out. Basically don't yell. Tell her what you want her to do and what will happen if she doesn't listen to you. If she doesn't do what you want you tell her what you are doing and why, in a calm voice. you must do this with everything. If she cries you hug her and tell her you love her and your sorry she didn't obey you. It is always her fault that you must punish her and you make it clear. And if she gets really upset and starts throwing a fit just put her in her room and when she can stop crying she may come out! Works like a charm and get the book!
