Throwing Fit

This week, Jada has been in a very bad mood. We don't know if she's
teething or sick or going through a phase, but this usually pleasant
child has been willful and crabby. She was a handful for Amy
yesterday when they spent the day together, even throwing objects at
her and at other kids when they were at the playground. She's still
too young to be punished, in that she can't yet make the connection
between whatever bad action she did and the punishment she receives as
a consequence. Our only recourse in terms of discipline is just to
make sure she doesn't hurt herself or others. Which means when she's
in a throwing fit around other little kids, it's time to go home.
