Well DD turns 1 in 11 days. I thought tantrums started at 2. I don't know what to do anymore or how to handle it.
She is throwing tantrums left, right and centre. She is actually 60% of the time, quite grizzly. But it's getting to the point where her whole body gets hard and stiff and she screams black and blue, especially when she wants something she can't have that I may be holding or may be in front of her. For example, my coffee, mobile, scissors, USB dongle.
I try distracting her and it doesn't work. I walk away, it doesn't work. I turn my back, I ignore, I yell, nothing works. She especially gets ****ty when she pulls up on me and gets grumpy/whingy and I refuse to pick her up; like last night when I was cutting raw chicken.
We've put a safety gate up so she can't get into the kitchen and she bangs on the gates screaming to get to me. I really don't know what to do anymore. I'm seeing my Dr tonight to talk to her about PND or anxiety because it's getting to the point where I'm ending up in tears.
We've been told that she is gifted and needs to be extra stimulated intellectually, but she isn't interested and just cracks the sh!ts.
Any suggestions? I can't write, speak, talk properly. I'm exhausted.
