T is 2. She's prone to tantrums, more so than a lot of other 2-year-olds, we suspect because while she comes from a very loving home, it's not the most stable, it doesn't sound like she has a very set schedule, and her teenaged aunt and uncle possibly don't know better than to give in to tantrums. So T throws her fits when she doesn't get her way, we ignore them, and she's over it very quickly.
T doesn't like naptime. But whatever, she's tired, she Needs To Nap. So I lay her on her mat, and she rolls away. I lay her back on her mat, she rolls away. I would just leave her where she rolls to, except for then she starts kicking whatever wall or crib she's rolled into. So I put her back on her mat, I pat her back and play with her hair, and when she trys to roll away, I don't let her. She screams and cries this whole time, to the point that I worry she'll make herself sick, and then she falls asleep.
I HATE this! I feel like some day, she's going to be on a therapist's couch, traumatized by some childhood event that she can't even remember
