Re: my 2 year old daughter is a nightmare please help

Hi there,

I think your child minder could perhaps use a different tactic in order to encourage your daughter to develop a better behaviour pattern. At 2 years of age your daughter really needs a great deal of support and love to get her through her anger and not be sent in to a naughty corner. It is highly unlikely that she understands her own anger or where it is coming from. I would be tempted to look for a new child minder as the one she has now is perhaps not able to handle this situation.

If this is not possible try to encourage your childminder use distraction techniques to handle your daughters temper before this behaviour escalates out of control. Good luck.
