as you all know, i recently had a new baby. my 2 1/2 year old daughter has not paid much attention to her baby sister until now. at first, she acknowledged her existence, but would just look at her like, "mommy i don't like this new toy. it doesn't do anything." i was pleased at first that she did not show any signs of jealousy. she's pretty mean to our 3 dogs, and i was terrified that she would exhibit the same behavior with my newborn. a few days ago, her terrible two's kicked into turbo gear. she is throwing astronomical tantrums where she throws herself on the floor whining, while saying, "ooowww! ooowww!" i know this is attention-seeking behavior, so i ignore it as i would any other tantrum. that only intensifies the situation, because she's irritated that i won't acknowledge her. i have even tried saying something along the lines of, "your alright, paisley. if your going to act like that, then go to your room and let me know when your done." she proceeds to her room, comes out quiet for a minute or so, and then starts all over again. i spend as much one on one time with her as i can between the housework, and caring for my newborn. i'm at my wit's end here, and i don't know what else to do. any tips?
