I have a 14 mo. old who is the light of my life, but as she is becoming a toddler I am finding trusting my own instincts harder and harder. Especially when out at play groups. She has been walking since she was 91/2 mo. old and is very verbal, she can say a lot of words and is very good at letting you know what she wants. She is in the 95th percentile for height. All of these things add up to a child who is bigger than her friends and more physically adept then her friends. This is causing problems! She get's frustrated very easily and is throwing tantrums all the time. I feel like this has snuck up on me. Lately if a friend takes something or is playing with something she thinks is interesting she goes to them and starts yelling and crying. She has never hit thank goodness but lately she is pretend pushing, she throws her hands up and makes a pushing motion she has never made contact with another child. I am more concerned about the yelling and tantrums when she doesn't get what she wants. I am starting to feel like everyone is looking at me like that mom who can't control her kid. Please help any suggestions or advice on how to tackle this new stage with love and positive discipline.
