my 18 month old is driving me crazy please help

I think something might be wrong with my 18 year old daughter. since she was a year old she has developed some pretty bad habits. she hits anyone that tries to stop her from doing something bad and she kicks and screams and bites. she throws food on the floor and just can't sit still for anything. she does not cooperate when getting her diaper changed and she has some pretty irregular sleeping patterns. she wakes up at 2 am and wants to be up ! she eats well and my wife and I give her plenty of attention. we have never layer a finger on her when it comes to discipline we simply tell her NO and she literally will slap herself in the face hard. it's pretty crazy! on the other hand she can be really sweet . she gives kisses and tells us she loves us. it's so confusing !!!! what could be wrong with her ?

Sounds like the average two year old to me! LOL, but if it gets REALLY bad, maybe u should talk to her pediatrician

I agree with that. I've seen babies (18 mo old is still just a baby) act like that my whole life. Not all do, each has their own personality, but many do.

Yeah, kids are a pain most of the time, but sounds to me like you have a normal baby girl. Enjoy her. Don't worry.

kids aren't born "brats" and she's too young to be that bad. take her to a child psycholgist. autism is very special and different and difficult but the sooner you figure it out and get help, the sooner that dark and heavy cloud will move away from your heart.

I would talk to her pediatrician. It may be normal, but it may be the sign of something that you need to know about.

She is too normal . Biting,pinching, slapping when she's frustrated, normal, irregular sleep skipping naps being up in night, normal, throwing food, spitting it out, refusing it, normal. slapping herself, hitting her head, gritting her teeth,'screeching, crying and hating to stop for a diaper change , very normal, Is this your first baby??? if so, it's normal for you to think she has come from another planet lol.

My 18 m/o nephew gets frustrated easy too. It's hard to use time outs at that age bc they don't understand. I think you are doing everything right and doing what you can. Just try removing her/him from situations that cause this behavior RIGHT AWAY. Like if they are throwing a fit and hit someone say "NO" firmly and take them away from the toy room, or where ever/what ever it may be. When they are closer to two you can start time outs for 2 minutes. I'm sure your doctor can give advice. Good luck! Soooo normal for that age.
