Okay I don't know what else to call them and we need some desperate help! For over two weeks now our dd has been exploding into raging tantrums where her sole purpose is to scream as loud as possible, throw objects at us (which I then remove if I didn't have the foresight to do so before they could be thrown), kick us, hit us, pull hair, scratch, bite and basically is SO MAD!! Of course the anger is infectious and both dh and I feel we are barely holding it together lately. It usually happens in the morning when we try to leave the house (and I provide lots of transistion time), in the evening when we get back, before bed, in the middle of the night (she will wake up mad, no warning), sometimes twice a night. I suppose I could handle it but each time it lasts almost 1.5 hours. I have tried holding her against her will and talking calm which usually gets me injured. Sitting nearby being calm, playing music. Aknowledging whatever I feel is upsetting her, even sadly very stern/almost yelling has occurred as time has progressed. Understandably I have had to place her in her room and walk away several times (door open, open invitation to follow when she is feeling better). Actually she has had unexplainable regular bouts with crying/being upset since she was a baby but lately she just seems so intensely mad all the time I am lost what to do, or how to help her. With other people like her home daycare she is great and calms down right away after we drop her off, if she is still mad when we get there (of course this is a lady who can put her in bed and she just goes to sleep, I have been trying to get dd to sleep longer since she was born with no luck except for a couple of days when the time changed!). I have taken video to prove to some this great child actually does this. I so want to spend time with her, and enjoy it! Help my nerves are shot I spend more time working with tantrums then getting to play!!
