Toddlers: 12 - 24 Months

Terrible 2's (Poll)

I'm wondering if my LO is just going through a short phase or if it's really the Terrible 2's.  [Poll]

  • Terrible 2's are a myth. Terrible 3's are real and terrifying and I wish I'd known what I was getting myself into.

    This is what I've always heard!

    Amen!  My DD is 3.5 and her "terrible" twos were a JOKE compared to her threes.  They have been AWFUL, and she's easier that a lot of her friends.  DS is 21 months and honestly such a delight, even when he's throwing a tantrum, compared to the sass, backtalk, attitude and irrational fits that came along when DD turned 3.

  • You all are depressing me. Will's tantrums and Alex's fits now are bad enough. If it gets worse ... Calgon, take me away!

  • Never had a 2 year old or a 3 year old so I can't say from experience.  But we do ge a lot of bad behavior already.  I just take it with stride and hope that my disicpline techniques will help me and her come through it in one piece!
