I don't know what happened to my beautiful little angel - but she seems to have turned into a tantrum thrower!!
I find it is usually when we are out (all of us, including Daddy) and we try to stop her from doing something or try to get her to go a different direction to what she wants. Today we were out looking at furniture/decorator shops and I decided that I would let her touch what she wanted and only stop her if it was something breakable, I thought that would save me form saying no every two seconds - and "pick the battle". But twice I had to carry a screaming child out of the shop and into the car to stop the tantrum!! She had a massive tantrum the other day because we had to leave the swimming pool (it was pouring with rain!!)
She is fine at home usually and she tends to be fine when it is just her and I.
I try to ignore the bad behaviour and praise the good (eg today we were at the swimming pool and she got out without a fuss when we had to leave so I told her how good she was for doing that). However it is sometimes hard to ignore it in the shops with everyone looking at you - I am not really that worried about what other people think, because she is a toddler and what do they expect? but I dont really like to hang around entertaining people with my toddler's screaming!
Mum suggested that when she does it we take her to the car and put her in for a couple of minutes and walk out of her sight (but not so we cant see her) and when she calms down go back to her and give her a cuddle and go back in if she is going to be good.
Just wondering what other people do?
