Please help me, I'm at my wits end.
My DD has been having terrible tantrums lately and the worst time is bedtime. She just doesn't ever want to go to bed. When she has her meltdown/tanties she turns into a different person. Screaming and hitting, pinching, kicking. There is just no talking to or reasoning with her because it's likes she goes into a trance and will not listen. I normally take her to her room and close the door until she calms down and then I will go in and talk to her. That is not working anymore because she just bangs on the door or opens it and then follows me around continuing to scream and hit whatever she can find, me or the walls, floors, furniture.
We have tried time outs & taking toys away and she just doesn't care. I don't know what else to do, I usually end up in tears because it's so horrible to deal with.
She just does not listen EVER!!
Her behaviour always seems to be worse with me aswell, she still carries on with DH but not as bad. DH has been working away this week and I'm just not coping dealing with bedtime dramas by myself.
