my daughter is 16 months old, and she is starting to act like her terrible twos are coming early. she says no to every question that she is asked. When we tell her not to do something sometimes she starts screaming or crying and throws her whole body backwards. I dont want her to hurt her self but i dont want to reward the bad behavior do i just keep ignoring her when she does this or do some of you have a better solution that may work.

As long as she's safe ignore her. Tantrums are a learned behavior and how you react to them usually factors into how long they have them and how bad they are.

Ignor the tantrums. They are only to get attention. Just make sure you are rewarding her when she is good too.
