I have the sweetest, most precious little 2.5 year old child. She plays well by herself, talks in complete sentences, listens well and loves on everyone. Sounds perfect right? Well, it is! She is! Her attitude, though, is not so much..
Lately, Miss CRC has developed an attitude as big as she is!! She has always had a temper, but its been easy to control. She'd snap out of it fairly quick. Not anymore! She will throw herself on the floor and have a complete meltdown! Nothing can get her out of it either.. I usually have to put her in either "time out" or in her bed and shut the door. That most always works, but it does take time. She can hold out for a while!
It stresses me out so badly! I want to just throw my hands up, put in some ear buds and tune her out, but I know I need to deal with the situation so it doesn't get out of control. I try to reason with her and talk it out after she has calmed down. It has seemed to work. She does understand the problem, but of course, it will happen many many times over!
You'd never think she'd have such a huge temper by looking at her sweet face... She has everyone fooled :)
