What do you do when your toddler cries and screams about everything, the tantrums are never ending and about the littlest things?

Ignore the tantrum. When they calm down, tell them you can't understand what they want when they cry, and can they tell you whats wrong? For us, it usually signals her being over-tired or hungry, so we have a snack or pop off for an early nap or bedtime. If you give in to tantrums, you encourage them in the long run. Also, if you try to out-yell them, they think the LOUDEST person wins. Not a good tactic. Good luck. Tantrums suck.

It's a terrible feeling when nothing you do calms them, it's almost just them trying to figure themselves and their emotions out but it gets very tiring and frustrating a lot of times.....but I guess that's why women are mommy's right ladies :)....better days are yet to come and that's the sunny side of things
