One of my girls has always been prone to violent tantrums, she got better for awhile and they are starting again. She will explode over nothing and it will carry on for hours. It starts over simple things like getting her shirt or a piece of clothing wet or dirty, and it escalates from there. She has now taken to calling herself stupid and ugly and saying she hates herself. This is only a recent occurence and it is disturbing me. I know I do not help her tantrums because I usually end up exploding also and she usually ends up with a spanking, however she will tell people I hit her in the face ( which I have NEVER done) she will also say that I don't love her anymore that I called her stupid, none of which I do. I have discussed this with her pediatrician and he keeps telling me she is too young to evaluate and it is her age, my husband thinks its funny. I really need advice on this situation.
