But have an anger problem she will turn around and choke or kick us (Parents, 4yr old brother and the children at day-care). This has happened before when she was about one year old and the doctor said its the terrible two stage she's going through and we have nothing to worry about but it doesn’t stop. She would scream and kick her legs for no reason or when ever she doesn’t get something her way.

She is having very bad temper tantrums. This is usually a passing phase.Everyone must leave the room when she performs and only return after the tantrum is over. Don't shout at her or get cross it only makes things worse.
