Last night, we had a repeat rage session. I noticed that she was a little cranky when I got home but not a big deal. Then she insisted on feeding me broccoli stir fry with a large fork except that her aim sucks and it went everywhere. Grease everywhere but I wanted to encourage her use of utensils and obvs I try to feed her a lot. I denied her the use of a steak knife which irritated her. Then the train flew off the rails when I wouldn't unzip my wallet. A screaming fest started and she can't stop herself so I took her upstairs and put her to bed. I tried to hug her and comfort her but she pushed me away so I changed her clothes and put her in her bed. She screamed at the top of her lungs for five minutes and then I checked on her, held her and repeated that it was bedtime and she went to sleep an hour early again.
What do you do when uncontrollable rage starts? I am usually in the camp that they need a tension release and I don't get upset. What are your thoughts? She has 16 teeth and no fever, BTW.
