Lately my 2 yr old has been throwing temper tantrums over the craziest things! Especially over clothes. For example.. If she wears socks, they have to be folded over perfectly or the seam has to be perfect over her toes. I recently bought her some

New shoes with a strap that goes across the top of her foot. If the strap doesn't go all the way across..she gets upset. ( her foot is too wide for them to go all the way & she doesn't like them too tight so I lose either way ). Her pillow has to be turned a certain way too! If these things are not perfect she is ballistic. Screaming & crying! She is not doing this because she is spoiled.. She is just getting very frustrated & it's almost near impossible to fix things the way she wants them! She goes through this numerous times daily! Anyone elses child going through this? I'm almost tempted to take her to the doctor to see if something is causing this. She is otherwise a healthy little girl. She is very very smart, ahead of most 2 yr olds!

Perhaps she does it to see if she can get u to do what she wants. ie... fix her shoes.

Ignore it. When she throws a fit, just walk away from her. My doctor staid if you give into a temper tantrum, it feeds it. He said if my little one sees it isn't getting to me he will stop. Good luck.
