Daughter panics~ need advice badly
12/19/2010 at 18:23 PM

Hi there, I have a 21 month old daughter who is generally well behaved. She will though panic over completely random things and when she panics she gets herself into a crying fit where she doesn't breath until she almost passes out.
This scares me and my husband so bad, she will lock her joints so she doesn't breath until she passes out unless we throw water on her(only thing that seems to truly get her attention when she's in panic mode).
We don't know how to prevent this or how to stop these panic attacks. She will do this either if she hurts herself(when any child would panic) or if she doesn't want to be put to bed etc.
I've looked all over and found nothing on this subject.
We don't know what to do....advice?
