and I give her a lot of credit. I tell her things like 'girls who tantrum don't get "__" (whatever)' because I figure someday she'll get it.

that's why I just go with the sweet and short, simple options. 'you do it or mom does it' and giving her time to see me and realize that it'll be time to leave soon instead of just arriving and swooping in and taking her abruptly (not saying you do that).

but anyways.. just some thoughts.
agree..I don't believe in threats like "you can't come back"

Choices choices choices. And choices that you can both live with.
