Any other parents dealing with a toddler that doesn't let you help them with anything? My daughter wants to do everything her self and cries if we don't let her. For example, here is a 20 second video of her saying "I Don't Need You."

Really Fiona? Really?
your a moron , your know that right?
Most parents would love to have a child like that! And what is so dam bad about a child showing independence? They grow up faster then you think, learn to enjoy what you have while you have it and quit complaining already-sheese!

Active and independent children are hard, becoming an adolescent is a dream that pushing them to try hard. They feel good when they can do something all by them selves. It boosts their confidence.

As far as my kids. We invested a lot of time into actually helping them be independent.

Let her try it. Just stand by to observe and give suggestions. If they fail it's ok. Praise them for getting that far without your help. Slowly show each step while explaining HOW and WHY you do it right. Then step back and watch your child learn and grow!
