I remember telling my mum I hated her but I was 13, dd is 5. We had some tantrums before school but they had calmed down and since starting school this feb Ive been using 1-2-3 magic and it had been working. We still had some minor tanties but a few mins in her room would calm her and mostly she would come out her happy self again. Now things have changed suddenly she is getting super angry at the slightest thing - eg I won't give her a treat, I try and quietly remind her to be kind to a younger child. Last week she took nearly an hour to calm down because I wouldn't let her have chocolate! And in that time she is throwing things around her room, screaming and trying to hit me when I remove throwable items. She is 100% perfect in school for the teachers. I suspect that she is feeling such pressure to conform at school she is losing it at home when everything doesn't go her way. But how do I discipline her without sending her into a spin? I refuse to just let her get it all her way at home as I think that will set me up from more issues later on.
anyone got any experience/suggestions?
