Thank you for the responses I feel that I'm remaining patient with her but my goodness I feel like it will never end!
I didn't even mention the demands
Example 1: Ice cream truck goes by while we're in the middle of dinner.
DD: (yelling) I WANT ICE CREAM! NOW!
DH & I gently explain that we are eating right now and are filling our tummies with healthy food etc. DDs behavior escalates into a full blown tantrum.
I don't know. DD can identify when she's mad and she still Loses It.
It's a phase. It ends between between 16 and 26 depending on the child. I have found Adventures in Gentle Discipline to be helpful, as well as nightly glass of Bordeaux or rose. Stay off the hard stuff. You can't mix it with alcohol and also it's expensive and hard to come by at times.
