DD will be 4 in 2 weeks. 90% of the time she is such a sweet girl, she listens well, she's respectful, cooperative, a real great kid. However, when she looses it, she doesn't know how to get over it. She's very cranky in the morning sometimes and still gets jealous of her almost 2 year old brother. DH is very stuck in routine and Doesn't let DD stay up later ever, so usually once a weekend if something is on I let her sleep in our bed with me so we can watch a movie. This morning she was sleeping and DS woke up, I brought him in to get some socks as she woke up. As soon as I sat down she starts flipping out screaming and crying and throwing herself on me so I can't cuddle with DS also. Tonight she didn't want to go to sleep because she doesn't want to go to school tomorrow. She keeps crying about it so rather than try to read her a book like DH usually does, I just laid down with her. She calms down and falls asleep without a book. Last week she wanted an oreo when I picked her up from school. I didn't have one so she screamed for the 5 min drive home. When I got home and DH saw how upset she was he got her a cookie, I said she shouldn't have had a cookie at that point.
She is told no plenty and is perfectly fine with it. We can shop at any store walk out with nothing, she expects that. For some reason once she does get into a tantrum, maybe once or twice a week, there is no getting over it. After she screams for a while I can hold her and just let her calm down. She can't seem to get there on her own and it seems to be getting worse. Anyone else experience this? Any suggestions?
