DD is 2.5, has had a couple of tantrum phases in the last year or so but they're back with a vengeance. She screams, throws herself around and is a danger to herself. Plus they all last for ages unless I can divert her right at the start. She's had a tough couple of months with an injury followed up with various bouts of illness. All seems to be ok now health wise but my goodness the tantrums this week have been awful. She's protested about pretty much anything, taking her brother to school, collecting him again, teeth, bedtime....

Bedtime is a biggy cause she's been fairly easy for ages. Into her sleeping bag, soft toys to cuddle, milk and into bed. Tonight she refused all of that and (I know I've screwed up with this bit) I sat with her on my knee (to stop the screaming) till she fell asleep. A slippery slope i know. I know I should've just put her in her cot but she'd have gone completely nuts if the rest of our day is anything to go by. Plus I have DS to consider.

These tantrums are so distressing for her and are impacting on everyone at the moment. Any advice or sympathy out there??

No advice I'm afraid but I do feel your pain, my DD 2.5 is the same at the moment. Constant tantrums & I'm at a loss on how to handle it. Hoping someone comes along soon with some advice but wanted to tell you that you are not alone! Lots of sympathy from me

Thanks gabby I cannot wait for a bit of logic to kick into DDs brain. DS was largely through this by the time he was 3 but my god it was tough. Only 6 months to go then.....

And this morning she has woken up calling for me, I've gone in and she's started tantrumming straight away. Where's my lovely girl gone?!
