@Pigwithwings11 thanks for sharing what's happening for you - I'm guessing that must have felt pretty frustrating, especially when you'd gone to the trouble of doing something kind like making muffins.
At ReachOut, our focus is on supporting parents who have children in the teenage years, so you might find the information at somewhere like Raising Children Network better suited to your family.
As a parent myself, I think it's common for children to be a little reactive at times (for want of a better word) as they are still learning how to manage their emotions.
I'm not sure if this is helpful, but I was wondering if these situations could be an opportunity to help your child to learn words for their emotions by reflecting them back to them (eg. 'you seem like you're feeling sad'), and giving them tools to soothe (eg. 'would you like a hug?')
It looks like you’re visiting us from a country other than Australia.
We are an Australian service and think you’d benefit more from looking up a similar service in your country.
You are welcome to look around the forums, but please don’t make an account or post, as we can’t offer you the help you may need.
Before you go ahead and post, you should know that we remove non-Australian accounts – not because we don’t want to help or connect with you, but because we may not be able to provide you with the service that you require.
