My daughter is 3 years and 2 months, she doesn't speak in whole sentences, just words or set phrases.
She will scream when something goes wrong or if she's told no.
For example, if she's playing with her toys and a teddy doesn't sit right or if the iPad freezes she will begin to scream till it's fixed. We've tried to teach to her to say "Mommy help me" or "Daddy help me", which she did for a while, but then reverted back to screaming.
Another example is while on the way home from the park she wanted to go around the block, so we did, but when turning back, she decided she wanted to go another way. It took 15 minutes to get her home (200 yards) and she screamed like she was being kidnapped all the way. She's very strong and picking her up is hard. And I feared she would hurt herself if I held her to tight. She didn't want to listen to anything her mum or I had to say.
This has been going on for about 6 - 9 months now and it's very difficult to keep cool.
She doesn't care about anything we say or if we show her that we're angry, disappointed or try to distract her, etc.
I really don't know what to do.
Any tips on getting her to listen to us?
