Sweet Pea has been having those daily raging (screaming, throwing herself on the floor, kicking...). It always start when she can't get her way. Sometimes, she will get upset but will be over it pretty quick or I can distract her. But some other times she is like a furry. Obviously reasoning with her is not an option although I do talk to her and explain why she can't do/have x.y and z. Explain that her behavior is not appropriate. I used to put her in her room and leave the door open. She would scream for a few minutes, come back out once somewhat calmed down but then would start again fairly quickly. Now I'm actually closing the door and let her scream until she is completely calmed down. It last maybe 20 minutes or more. It seems like an eternity of course! Usually her room is trashed, but it is so babyproof that she really cannot do a whole lot. Once I open the door, she signs "sorry" right away and I explain to her that she cannot scream and kick when I say no. We hug and move on. The method works for me, it allows me to stay emotionally calm and still take care of the other 2 without having a complete chaos in the house. But how healthy is it for Sweet Pea? Is she actually learning anything along the way? I know I'm not torturing her, but it sure feels that way. Is there any other effective methods to dealing with a raging almost 2 year old?
