Like pbjmama, I also have a wonderful-but-challenging DD, and I think her tantrums were probably the *worst* around 4 years. (She's 8 now.) She's very strong-willed, very verbal (i.e. a great...

Yes, yes, and yes to the therapy (and not just for her...family therapy would probably be really helpful) and to mommy taking care of herself first. I also agree that she probably doesn't need more...

My daughter really likes Headbanz (not a board game; more like 20 questions), and we've had limited success with Kid Cranium. I think DD's frustration was due to her developing reading skills; I...
