Quoting Socialist:" She knows she'll get what she wants if she cries. Either take the time and sit with her, or start teaching ... [snip!] ... and it should start to get less and less. She may be outgrowing nap time, though. That may be something to think about. "

Yeah I totally agree, Me and DH believe that she knows that if she cries she'll get what she wants because she does this throughout the day... I tried explaing it to her and so far it hasnt helped she keeps doing it, i just figured it was the terrible twos, but its starting to get out of hand

Thats what I currently do, I stay with her till she falls asleep, im just hoping she'll out grow this soon

I would feel horrible to let her cry for so long especially if I know she probably is just lonely or needs me around. But its not like I lay in the bed with her, I'll sit in the corner and be on my nook or something, I guess she just needs to know Im aorund

Stop giving in. It's a phase and part of being two she cries because se knows eventually you just might give in.

No one said parenting was easy. Calmly explain why can't have said item try to redirect her and if she cries she cries. I always try to give an alternative. Ex mommy can I have a cookie. No because its almost dinner time however
You may have some grapes would you like those?
