Trouble with Tantrums

Yeh, so 18 months really isn't  my favorite age... and 19 isn't ranking higher on that list as of yet - we'll we're only 4 days in, but still. Some days she's all sweetness and light, and some days it's nothing but screaming and fits, like throw-herself-on-the-ground-kicking fits. Flicks on the mouth don't work - she literally laughs at me like I'm tickling her. So we've been doing time-outs. I don't know how effective they are, but at least she mildly dislikes them. She's also taken to putting baby dolls and Ripley in time-out.
I had heard about this book, Bringing Up Bebe, when it came out a little while ago and thought it sounded interesting. Well the first chapter was free on iBooks, and it got me, I purchased the rest. I'm liking it so far. I'll let you know how it turns out. Anyone got a copy of The Strong Willed Child? It's an oldie, but I hear - a goodie :)
