    Rough Transitioning

    Hi everyone,
    I currently have a DCG who is just started with me this past week. In all honesty has been a nightmare. She screams (no crying) for pretty much the whole day and she also throw tempter tantrums by kicking her legs and throwing herself on the floor.

    I am a very patient person so that isn't my issue as I am wanting to work with this child. My issue is I have no idea what to do!! I didn't even know child could throw tantrum like this at such a young age.

    If anyone has ANY advice please feel free to let me know!

    You don't mention exactly how old. I have just had one like this who screams when he doesn't get what he wants / own way, and throws himself down on the floor etc. He was a dream the first month He's just finished with me today (going to recently retired grandparent) but I was surprised as when it started he was a 13 month old throwing 2 yr old tantrums! I used redirection or ignored it or sometimes just started dancing with him in my arms!
    He was an only child (but sibling due before the summer) and first grandchild so I think he was much indulged, which could obviously not be replicated in a group setting.

    This child is 13 months closer to 14 months. The issue that I have is that the tantrums do not stop! The only time he stops is if he is picked up! I dont want to pick him up while he is doing that but sometime for the sake of the other child I do it becuase he can go on all day. LOl

A few tips...

Always ensure that your child receives quality care by taking the time to investigate the provider and by asking for references! We simply cannot verify the claims of every daycare provider.
