My daughter is 3 years old, she never went through terrible twos. I thought this is great hopefully she wont go through that stage at all. Boy was I wrong.
She has started throwing these tantrums that are the worst I have ever seen. We can’t control her or calm her down. I have tried everything;getting down to her level and trying to talk to her to calm her down, threaten to take some stuff away that she really likes, tell her when we get home we can play outside or play a game.
It always seems to be when we are out in public, it is so embarrassing. I always take her to the car and she absolutely refuses to get in her car seat. She scratches, kicks and screams. Last night my husband took her and my son out quick to the store. I was making dinner and I was starting to get worried while they were gone so long and he called me and asked me to come pick my son and the milk and he was going to wait it out with her until she would get in her car seat so he could buckle her in.
Well another half hour went by and he called me again and said he could not calm her down and she still refused to sit in her car seat. I tried getting her to sit in her seat she immediately started to kick and scratch me. I tried forcing her in her car seat and she just grabs a hold of it and pushes away.
I don’t want to reward her bad behavior. I am at a loss of what to do at this point.
What do you do when your kids throw tantrums and they are out of control? I need some advice.
