My lo often has 'moments' and I try very hard to focus on all the good things he's done that day instead of the bad. Like if he's not eating his dinner (which happens a lot) I think well he did have x y z for lunch. Terrible twos are a nightmare but it's the only way they have to express themselves. saying that I'm NOT looking forward to the 3rd year!!!
so wish I read this early rather than posting a new thread Seems that I am not alone Mckenzie is very demanding and spits out his food and runs around constantly and knocked into other children. I personally don't think he is naughty just tests the boundaries ect I really don't want to be a parent who shouts so I am trying to explain y it is naughty and let him think we do have a naughty step/corner which he does stay there and we ask him y he is sitting there then hugs kiss and sorry. Hoping it stops soon esp the pushing and shouting
Well I've been trying to really stick to the discipline. It's always been hard in public. But tonight for example we were at a local restaurant that has kids night. For no reason out of nowhere, he just reached over and smacked me in the face! I took him aside to a hallway where the restroom is and stood him against the wall and told him you don't hit people and explained that's why he was standing there etc. Like I do home with the naughty seat. He immediately said "sorry Mommy" and hugged me but I made him stand there longer. It seemed to help a bit but once he was done eating he for bored and started throwing crayons. It's just so frustrating!
Chloe was great in the 2's, I was like, 'what the hell is everyone talking about, shes not terrible'
She was 3 last month - in 4 weeks I am now knowing EXACTLY what everyone is talking about. Much harder but I have to hide my face with some of the things she comes out with as they are hilarious - I love this age too!
