My 7 year old daughter has been crying and screaming when we tell her that she can’t do something. She has to ask us before she can just get and use things. She gets so upset when we tell her “no” that she starts screaming and crying. So we ignore this behavior? I try to comfort her, but if this is about not getting what she wants instead of not being able to do something developmentally, then I think I need to ignore it. Right?
No we don’t have any therapy here.
