This is my second child and she is so sweet, but when she is mad watch fit fit she is 18months and will have a full blown out tantrum, will throw stuff etc. I try to remain clam I'm at my wit ends any ideas on how to deal with these strong emotions from her....

Use a play pen or safe area snd when she goes into a full blown strop place her in the pen and walk away. Let her calm down completely before letting her out. When she is calm tell her that mummy does not like this screaming so every time she does it she will go in the pen. If she has no audience she will not do this. These tantrums are pure frustration that her body wont do what her mind wants to do. They will stop as she gets more co-ordination but in the mean time limit the paddies with safe time out.
