My dd has in the last month or so become sooo emtionally volatile. Every morning first thing, she throws a hysterical fit about one thing or another. It doesn't matter what I do to prevent it, she will find something to get upset about. This goes on throughout the day. She will lose a toy, not want to go outside, not want such and such for lunch, etc. I have seen so many posts about this with two year olds and tantrums. But she never threw tantrums up till now. I guess this is just the course of her developement...but it is making me so angry. I don't know how to deal with this behavior. Seems if I am empathic with her, it eggs her on and we could go 30-45 minutes of friekout. I don't have the time or energy to sit there empathically all day long listening to her scream and whine. I have been telling her if she doesn't stop she will have to go to her room. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/greensad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="greensad"> I would like to try something else. Any suggestions?<br>
Another reason I am really frustrated with the behavior is that a neighbor recently complained about the noise from our apartment, and I am stressed about getting more complaints. I know we can't get evicted for having a screeching child, but it still stresses me out.

OH MY GOODNESS...<br><br>
If this is a normal 3 year old thing, I hope someone tells us... DS has been impossible for a while now... nothing is good enough for him! He isn't like that with me as much as he is with DH! I'll check back here and see if anyone has ideas...
