My daughter will be 8 in a few weeks. We have been dealing with tantrums from her since she was 11 months. I don't understand what sets her off. Most days it is anything and everything. Something as simple as "can we go swimming?" and my reply is "not right now, it's not quite hot enough out so we need to wait for it to get hotter" and she goes off "I WANT TO GO SWIMMING NOW! IT'S NOT FAIR! I HATE LIVING HERE!" Then she'll go into her room, slam the door, throw things, scream etc..... It's to the point where I can't stand being around her anymore. I am trying to get her into my son's dr (he has ADHD) just to see what they say. My son doesn't act like this at all so I can't imagine what it could be. I've done time outs, redirecting, taking away priveledges, etc...nothing gets it in her head. We have left stores when she acts like this, nothing works. It makes her mad but then she does it again the next time. thanks.
