As our daughter has grown over the last year, thankfully the frequent tantrums have reduced . I am sure that is age related rather than anything else.
However, what we are now left with is far less frequent but far more explosive tantrums. A good example this week was a neighbour very kindly invited my husband and daughter over so that she could turn out a jigsaw for her. All went well and N was more than happy having a look around the house and chatting to our neighbour. the jigsaw in question was handed over and she said "thank you" so my husband was very proud of her. They were then leaving and then N suddenly said "I don't want it. Give it back" DH explained that you don't do that with a gift (and certainly not in front of neighbour) - he was very embarrassed. That resulted in a real kicking and screaming tantrum out in the street and continued back home. Lots of tears, yelling, door slamming etc. I got in from work to find it calmer but clearly not right. Anyway, long story so apologies but
Is this still likely to be her age rather than condition related? It was in the same week as going back to preschool where her behaviour tends to worsen as she gets used to being back in their routine.
i sat her down and explained why what she did was wrong and made her "write" a thank you card and take it over. But how much of the message got through, I have no idea. She did tell me that "daddy started it"..... funnily enough, I believe it to be the other way round.
