My daughter is classified as "intense". She has very emotional outbursts and can not calm down. They start with the smallest things such as needing to do homework before watching a movie. I have followed the love and logic books and they work for a while and then it stops working. Here is my issue. When she gets upset, we do not call it a "time-out" we call it "quiet time" and she is expected to go to her room and calm down. It works about 50% of the time. The other 50%, she goes in there screaming and destroys, literally destroys, her room. I mean takes clothes out of the drawers, off the hangers, clears out bookshelves, rips the sheets off her bed...she even took the mattress off once. So when she is in this mood of destruction, how can I get her to calm down with out ripping apart her bedroom. If I put her anywhere else, she will not stay (sometimes she will not stay in her room either). I live with my parents and I am constantly on pins and needles trying to avoid these meltdowns because it makes everyone else uncomfortable. Please help me before I lose my mind!!!
