Oh, someone please advise <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/praying.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="praying">: ...<br>
A couple days ago DD started cruising around on the furniture. She's doing pretty well but when she takes a spill she becomes absolutely enraged! I have matching scratches along either side of my nose as I type this.<br>
Last night, her foot got wedged under the couch as she was creeping. Once I freed her she turned on me. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/greensad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="greensad"> It was crazy; she slapped me in the face about 3 times- the whole time she's screeching at the top of her lungs!<br>
WTH is going on here??? I understand that life can be frustrating when your 14 months old but she's never behaved aggressively towards anyone.<br>
I'm kind of at a loss. The first few times, I just held her & tried to comfort her...which totally backfired. She just seemed to get even more agitated.<br>
Last night when I picked her up, she promptly clawed my face. I put her down & said, "You’re okay baby" she cried for a second but didn't seem <i>as</i> angry. I'm at a loss here. It's heartwrenching to see her so upset. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/guilty.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="guilty"> We just want to do what's best for her. It's hard b/c we always just knew what she needed. We're both feeling very unsure in our parenting.<br>
Do some kids cool off better on their own?<br>
I don't want to abandon her in her time of need but I don't want to add to her frustration by smothering her. Anyone have similar experience or advice?<br>
TIA!

Perhaps she has a very low tolerance for frustration, like my ds? I'm constantly surprised at just how frustrated my ds can get, and how angry he gets when he's frustrated. And yes, his anger can lead to aggression. She's 14 months, just when things started to get really frustrating for my ds. No real advice, just comiseration.
