My 3 year old cries all the time!

My 3 year old daughter wakes up screaming and crying and goes to bed screaming and crying every day.  She's been this way since she was born - everything has to be her way or no way.  She is extremely sensitive to seams, tags, and having everything exactly as she wants.  She wants something and when I get it for her she suddenly decides she no longer wants and throws a tantrum.  She goes to daycare a few days a week and is fine and seems to only do this with us.  i could go on and on with examples but need to know if we should see a specialist or if she will eventually outgrow this.  She is so hard to be around....help!!  We also have a 20 month old son who is the most easy going and happy child.

She will likely change for the better over time, but in the meantime take a look at Lynn Clark's book SOS Help for Parents. It will help you re: behavior management. Also, arrange a Sensory Integration Evaluation (this is conducted by Occupational Therapists) - it sounds like your daughter may display some tactile sensitivity/defensiveness issues.
