You want to be the best possible parent you can be, nurture her and guide her to a bright future, you are looking for answers and tools to help you on this journey. As your daughter evolves her own identity and belief system with your support, you see her being bombarded with external information that will forever impact who she is. She is absorbing all the information she can get, she is vulnerable and open to the world. Building a solid bridge to your daughter's bright future
Tantrums A temper tantrum is the emotional equivalent of a summer storm – sudden and sometimes fierce. One minute you and your child are in a restaurant enjoying your dinner, the next minute she's whimpering, whining, and then screaming at the top of her lungs because her straw is bent.

Though you may worry that you're raising a tyrant, take heart – at this age, it's unlikely that your child is throwing a fit to be manipulative.

Most parents believe that even the most mundane acts of parenting—from their choice of day care to their policy on videogames—can profoundly influence the success of their children.
