thanks everyone - her big brother turns into an angel when she has her tantrum and reminds me how much of a good boy he is lol and he does what he can to help me bless him! he never really went through the terrible two phase but she's making up for it - i'll certainly take all your advice on board and please give me a yell if i can help you in return!! hugs and thanks x

lol this time passes very quickly you just need to keep on to them as they can now understand and they just test you i have a 2 year old now and 1 year old younger and 2 older at 4 and 6 so u can do it and yes it gets better in girls from 2 half to 3 and boys are still going at 5 i found my girls easy if u try time out u can only do it for 2 mins other wise they forget why they are there u will get there it all just stops.

I walked away from my daughter when she threw tantrums. If I was in a store I walked far enough that I coiuld see her but she couldn't see me and then she wasn't getting the attention from me that she was looking for. Before long she relized that tantrums weren't getting her anywhere and she quite. It didn't take long either. Does her brother react to her tantrums? You might have a problem if he does in that he might try throwing some of his own now. Just make sure that she knows you love her and you will listen to her when she's ready to talk to you nicely and go from there. They normally are looking for attention or are too tired to express nicely what it is they want. Good Luck
