Surely a bit dramatic, but it feels like it. I need to figure out how to stop my 2 yr old from screaming in time out (she will not stop once she gets going) and when she's angry. And kicking at hitting. With kicking at hitting, there is NO force behind it, it's just an action but I do not want that action whatsoever. If you've got ideas, throw them at me!

My son does the same thing.. He is also throwing himself down and stomping his feet when I tell him no.. I was told it was something they go through...

I'm certain it's something they go through. Doesn't mean I'm going to find it acceptable and let her continue. I'm looking to put a stop to it and I was hoping that someone would lend a helping bit of advice to do so.
