Hi everyone. Im new here so please bear with me. I am stepdad to Sophie who was born with CP and brain damage. She is now 7 and is a wonderful kid, normally very happy just being happy and by making everyone around her smile. However she has recently began to turn instantly moody and will kick-off big style if she doesnt get her own way. This can result in screaming fits and doing the dying fly as we call it (lieing on her back kicking up at anyone who goes near her). This can be VERY distressing for all concerned and I was wondering if anyone has any advice on coping with this type of bad behaviour. Normally I use distraction techniques to coax her along but even I think she is getting a bit wise to me! Thanks for any advice with this. Bern.
