Is this normal? nikkitasha. Due March 17; 1 child; Seneca, SC, United States 256 posts

My daughter will be a year old on May 10th. The past 2-3 weeks I have noticed that her attitude has changed ALOT. She gets upset very easily. For example, this morning after I fed her breakfast, I tried reading her a book and she slammed it shut and threw it. I also tried giving her a sippy cup and she slapped it away and got mad. She's been like this off and on for the past few weeks. It's like everything I do is wrong. She has also been very clingy to me lately. She always wants me to be in her sight. If I walk out of the room even for a few seconds she cries. Is this behavior normal for her age? Why is she acting like this and what can I do to help?



Thank you!

Sounds right to me.



She has all these emotions developing and no solid outlet for them so she acts out to express her frustration over the whole bit.



Just keep talking it out with her and doing what you're doing.



Good luck!

Its normal at this age. She is starting to be more independant and also getting ready for a big growth spurt and possibly cutting teeth. My son is about the same age and going through the same thing. It is pretty normal at this age.

Normal. My dd is almost 15 months (on the 4th) and she started that around 12 months or so. The thing I hate the most right now cause she is does not talk yet at all, just grunts at me. Is when I talk to her or try to give her something she will turn her back to me and kinda look at me over her shoulder with a "b***h " please look on her face lol its funny but annoying and when I talk to her she will grunt at me.

I will give her her cup and she will throw it on the floor then want it and if I give it back she will do it again. lol

I stopped giving stuff back to her when she acts like that. I tell her its not nice to throw stuff and show her how to put it down gently its been helping so far. But it annoys me when she turns her back to me and grunts when she is upset or mad at me for whatever reason. lol
