sounds like she is bored, not getting enough stimulation. at that age they have lots of "stuff" around them to play with or get into but i have found they are needing something to challenge them. about every six months i add something new to the mix. like puzzles with bigger pieces, different blocks, beads and ayrn for making necklaces (under supervision of course) glue and glitter, something they haven't done before. think new. it helps alot to keep thier mind busy. and in the end you keep your sanity.

I have 3 boys, ages, 5, 3, and (1 week away from being) 2. My 3 yr old was/is quite a handful and my soon-to-be 2 yr old is right behind him the whole way. Give her a special project that only she can do that comes with a special reward. Stickers worked great in my house, sorry but I'm at a lack of knowledge for what little girls like. If you can, make time to do the task with her the first few times. I can only afford very little time with my boys, but I've had to force myself to let some things wait while I spent 20 minutes one on one with each boy, then 30 minutes to do something special with all 3 of them. It seems impossible but sometimes it does work. Also don't be afraid to sit her in front of her favorite cartoon for a few minutes while you collect yourself. I hope this helps.

Do you think she has separation anxiety? Some toddlers will get like that. Try leaving her with your parents/inlaws/daddy for short periods at a time. Then slowly extend those periods.
