She keeps screaming and whining at the top of her lungs at me. It gets real bad when she doesn’t get her way! I have tried everything.
She is 13.
My daughter will be 3 in July. I recently set through this course called 1-2-3 Magic. It’s all about discipline for children ages 2-12. It’s amazing and has done a world of good with my daughter who also screamed and whined a lot. It’s all about counting, simply start the 1-2-3 method by saying “that’s 1” after five seconds, “that’s 2” then five more second “that’s 3, take 5” That’s when you put your child in timeout for the appropriate number of minutes, they say one minute for each year of your child. However my daughter gets five minutes, she’s pretty advanced and three minutes just doesn’t cut it for her. It’s amazing that after you stick to this for a week or so how they really do start to settle down after “that’s 2” especially because my daughter has to go to her room and shut the door. She hates it, but knows that once the timer goes off she can come out. I know it sounds way too easy, but it truly has been amazing for us! No more spankings and not quite as much annoying whining and screaming. Believe me when I say my daughter is very trying and can be very hard to deal with at times, however 1-2-3 has become one of my husband! Look it up on the Internet, it’s amazing, it’s called 1-2-3 Magic!
