hi huma - all of us go thru what we call terrible twos or terrorist threes :) hang in there! one suggestion - try to wean her off the mobile and ipad. instead pls buy her some musical books, CDs (music) and toy gadgets. they may be noisy by they dont make baby irritable. whn my 9 yr old does too much screen time she gets cranky even at this age :( are there any other kids in the building. pls try and make her spend time wth other kids. if its cooler in the evening pls take her to the park to play. or catch up wth a friend in the mall and let her play in the mini play area. pls get her some baby puzzles - 2, 3 pieces and play wth her. since its hot u can let her play wth water in bathroom for a while. in the kitchen pls let her play wth bartan :) Sheeba Vijesh Sheeba Rizvi pls help!

Hi Huma this happens almost with every child and mom. dont be stressed or loose patience. All useful advices are already given by asha chaudhry try these dear it will work. Let her cry for sometime but don't entertain her tantrum by giving electronic devices it takes time but she will leave tantrum when she realise it won't work...chill and enjoy hum bhi aise hi honge bachpan mein 😉☺

hi dear, try not to lose your patience. tell her firmly that people are not for hitting. do not give phones or tablet, and try not to use in front of her... join her in playing or doing some good diy activities... thanks for the tag asha chaudhry
