Question: Temper tantrums

Lots of stressful stuff happening in my house lately. My DD (age 5) has been throwing massive temper tantrums, which we ignore. She seems very volatile and emotional. Any ideas on how we can get her to control her emotions or talk about what is bothering her?

Did your dd jsut start K? IF so that alone is stressful for her and probably making her emotional. One of my kids is highly emotional and we find that art is a great outlet for her. She does these drawings or paointing and it is amzing how it shows her feelings. Then we ask her to tell us about them. It usally gives a clue about what is eating at her.
