The blog where I complain about Sydney

Sydney whines.
She whines pretty much 24/7 with an occasional smile or laugh but then it's back to the whine. If it isnt her way she whines. This morning I was trying to make Sam and Courtney some toast and Sydney didnt want me downstairs AT ALL. She just screamed and cried the whole time. I lost it. I screamed. I picked her up and made her leave the room. I screamed some more. I just don't know what to do. Even now she is lying on the couch watching a movie (that the volume is up high because she breaks out in screams and cries WHILE SHE IS WATCHING THE MOVIE!) She is so stubborn and just won't let anything go. We could be doing something really fun and having a great time and then she remembers something where she didnt get her way and starts crying about that. It's really hard to deal with and I dont know what to do about it. I have tried everything from yelling, spanking, ignoring, taking her away from the situation but nothing seems to work except her "getting her way." (which isn't going to happen) I want her to be happy, heck I want to be happy but man she is driving me nuts!
