Hi all I haven't been on the forums for a while so I hope it's okay to start a new topic. My (almost) 15 month old has started to throw the most terrible tantrums - sometimes for no obvious reason. At the moment I am putting her in her playpen and ignoring her when it happens. How long is it okay to leave them screaming though? Till they stop? Today she seemed to go on and on. I am worried in case I am missing something very basic, but the crying is ill tempered rather than the kind of crying hunger or a wet nappy brings about. Is it normal for tantrums to start this young? Someone suggested to me that she might have picked up the habit from older kids at nursery. Any advice or suggestions would be very welcome. Cheers!
