    thats pretty strong behavior for a young child. I have been around kids for 28 years and there seems to be a bigger issue here. No matter what, she is not in charge of U the adult.

    I would strongly encourage you, that is encourage you to curb this behavior NOW or you and her will be miserable forever. She hasnt even reached the testy 2 and terrible 3's yet. Hold her more, read to her more, anything to get her to be calm, brush her hair while sitting on your lap, there is far more things for you to try and I urge u to get to the bottom of it, start with your own stress with it. The bottle is the smaller issue, start with the throwing, screaming my goodness I wish u well......

    does she nap well? sleep at night? is someone with her during the day that she is having a problem with?

    I don't agree with spanking either. I have a 15 month old DD. If she touches something shes not supposed too, after you already tell her sternly (not yell) NO!, then smack her hand (not hard, just hard enough so he understands that its BAD) then redirect. If shes making messes, you tell her to clean them up. My DD understands when shes in trouble and shes done something bad and so does your DD .. she just knows you wont do anything about it. Isolate her from the "fun" situation for a few minutes, she will eventually get the message. Don't tolerate that kind of behavior, otherwise you will have a very rough 17 years ...

    Make sure shes up at a resonable time in the morning, has an afternoon or evening nap, and an early bedtime.get her on a schedule and stick with it!

    Like others said. She is doing it because she can. If she is in a bed I'd put her back in a crib, say goodnight and walk out

    Let me offer you this. A 15 month old, although is your baby, is not actually a BABY. Regardless if the pediatrician is fine with a bottle it really is a good time to get rid of it. The longer you let her keep it the harder it will be. Your toddler is doing this because she can not because she doesn't know better. Get up remove her from the situation put her in bed. Keep putting her in bed. If you can't deal with this you have a long road ahead

    They can't break no glass envolved ! They are the big round ones that sit on a stand ! She likes her bottle she isn't ready to give it up yet her pedi is fine with it .

    Simple! Get off your fucking ass and put your foot down! Your having her take a bottle at 15 months? Why? And you obviously are letting her be the boss. Be a parent. That's what you should do. She could hurt herself throwing candles if they break and you just sit on your ass and talk on cafemom about it. I just can't wrap my head around it.





    Quoting 2ltlmonkeyz:

    What would you have me do ? She is a baby i do not spank, she is not throwing candles now she has calmed down. No I am not ignorant are you ?




    Quoting Anonymous:

    I typically just read and dont respond. But what the fuck?? You are on your ass on cafemom and letting your 15 MONTH OLD throw candles off the coffee table?! Are you that ignorant! Get off your ass and do something!

    why do you let her tear apart your house? you don't have to spank the child, you just need to intervene. My dd used to be awful when she was overtired, I'm bigger than her, I would physically take her to her room and place her in bed. She could scream all she wanted she wasn't leaving that bed, read to her, get a coloring book something and if that didn't work so what, she's bound to get tired. I just can't imagine you letting your toddler wreck your house.

    like I said if she doesn't want to color she should still stay in bed, my dd would move to keep awake, when I had enough of it I placed her in bed and that was that, if it meant staying there until she finally passed out then that's what I did but she wasn't allowed out of that bed, I appreciate that you don't want to annoy your neighbors and all but at this point you are doing more harm than good letting her do what she is doing. She doesn't determine bedtime, you do, like pp's already said, bath, story, bed end of discussion, it may mean you have to be the big bad lady that won't let her get up. When dd was going through this I literally would have to lay with her until she finally gave up and fell asleep. It sucks but after a week of it she got the idea that I wasn't going to let her out of bed. Good luck
