My almost 2 to DD is a "spirited" one. She has always been strong and over zealous with everything. She understands to be gentle etc but lately I'm so sick of her behaviours. She is like a bull in a china shop, breaks everything. For example we got her a new wooden kitchen, put it together with screws etc, within 2 hours she has pulled off 3 doors... I dong know how but she gave us the doors. When she gets something in her head she just won't listen, her FDC carer says this too. She has a small table and chairs (wooden and heavy) she picks it up and puts it on her head.... Surely this isn't normal toddler behaviour?
Anyways I'm afraid she is going to hurt herself or her younger brother. I'm sick of her destroying everything she gets. I have tried talking to her, explaining to her, showing her what to do with toys, she knows how to play with things but has the attention span of a pea. I now feel like I'm shouting at her all the time, this morning has been particularly bad.
Any suggestions to get her to be more gentle and calm. Is this something I should be addressing with a professional. I don't believe he'd behaviour is normal.

My toddler is much the same, he does have Sensory processing disorders though. So he needs the feel of hard touch, he bangs, crashes and breaks things all the time. He can also be gentle at times as well.
Not saying that there is something amiss with your little one, but if you think there is something wrong then deffo get it checked. Mummies intuition and all that!
