first question on here

How do you deal with the temper tantrums of a 20 month old? She kicks, she screams, she makes my head explode. I've tried time outs; I don't know what to do anymore. Help!!

    Hi Sabrina! 20 months is still pretty young and she is probably still trying to figure out how to express herself. Does Claire talk? What is the extent of her vocabulary? Have you tried helping her find the words to express herself?

    If she doesn't talk much:

    Have you tried ignoring her? Diverting her attention to something else?

    What is setting off the tantrums? Not getting her way? Not getting a toy? Not watching a TV show?

    Does she watch TV, have Kindle or iPad time? Have you tried saying something like, if you fuss you won't get to_______fill in the blank with something she enjoys.
