Hi guys, i'm writing here in desperation. I have a 2.5 yo with a serious attitude problem with me. While I know most tots go through controlling stages she's beyond that. And its only with me. Shes been with two daycare providers who say she is exceptionally well behaved. I'm a single mom and have a long commute to and from work, she comes to a day care near my job.
She just screeches and thrashes so viciously and throws herself on the floor. Its so bad i once verbally reprimanded her, nothing bad and a lady came to put in her two cents. Others will go straight to her and ask whats wrong. Sometimes i'm scared to think what others are thinking. I'm resentful because i feel like the bad guy where i cant even parent in public. I've never spanked, her tapped her, curse at her or call her names.
At home its easily resolved with one or two time outs. I can't give a time out in public, especially on the train. I know i can try to keep her entertained, but don't think she should always have a full-on circus either. Looking desperately for input thanks.
