Hello



O yes this is soooo normal. My 4 year old daughter does the same stuff and it drives me CRAZY. My mom says I was the same way and she just laughs. Today she actually said just wait till shes 12, and I said why does it get easier? No 10x worse :) So I am in the same boat and I hvae many friends with the same "problem" My daughter can be the sweetest, most helpful little girl and then the second she doesnt get her way, holy cow, stomping feet, throughing head back, its crazy. When I have a second to think about it I just laugh. I do time outs and also a time out isnt needed I just ignore her. I have two younger boys and I dont have the time or energy to lkisten to this nonsense. So hang in there. THIS TO SHALL PASS :) enjoy

hi revel, thanks for the insight on yours.......sometimes it seems like im the only one going through these kinds of things, i also have a 16 month old, so theres alwasy someone with a problem,and unlucky for me not too many of my friends have kids this age, if any at all, os its hard for them to relate sometimes, because they have no idea what its like......= )

My daughter can behave exactly the same way, and she is an only child so I know that sometimes we give her too much attention and that doesn't help. You do have to ignore the behaviour because they are doing it to seek attention and to get a reaction out of you.
