Dear god I am losing the will to live, my eleven year old daughter has just had her hundredth tantrum this week. Kicking, lashing out, spitting. She is very tall and very strong. My husband is still up there as I’m sobbing down stairs. We have four hours respite a week from this and have a two year old son.
Help us please!
Any support/advice is greatfully received.
This erupted from us saying no to one more episode of Mr Bean.

    Stay strong, your house, your rules.

    My son was never a real problem, but there were a couple of occasions that I suggested he should:- "leave home now while you still know it all."

    There seems to be no reasoning with her at all. When she’s in this red rage there’s no coming back.
    shes woken up and the first thing she’s said is that she’s “still angry about my behaviour last night”!
    She’s angry???
    its like being constantly on the ropes in a boxing ring and I’m so punch drunk I can’t breath.
