How to stop tantrums every time we get in the car?

User - posted on 09/02/2012 ( no moms have responded yet )




My husband and I are in desperate need of advice. My daughter just turned 18 months and for the past month or so, EVERY time we go somewhere in the car, she pitches fits, tries to make herself cry, screams, and kicks the back of my chair. She'll be fine all day laughing and playing but the second we get into the car and get going, she starts this - if it was once or twice I could chalk it up to her being tired or having a grumpy day but it's not, it's EVERY time she's in the car and it's getting really irritating. I feel like we can't go anywhere (even if it's just to the store) anymore... we have family things coming up but she pretty much starts this once we head out and will continue it until she either a. falls asleep due to her crying or b. until we get to the destination. It's hard to ignore it every time this happens and I need advice! Please help!
