4 yr old who throws major temper tantrums has multiple meltdowns everyday. Can get physical with you at times. What can/should be done? Desperate!
Talk to your doctor: First, talk with your child's doctor. She may recommend a child therapist or behavior counselor. Give your child choices where you can, but not where you can't.
