    hi my DD is nearly 2 and we have definalty hit the terribe 2s. she is a very strong willed wee girl who is also very affectionate and lovely however after today im wondering if the tantrums and testing is indeed normal for most toddlers this age!!! we must of had about 5 tantrums today, constant testing on limits, the constant battle over everything like gettting in to the buggy or carseat , getting dressed, nappies etc.... we do timeout/timein with her and she has complete understanding of this and it does work usually lol!!

    anyway tell me this is all normal and what to do!! cheers in advance

    I'm afraid so. Amelie goes through little patches like this when shes a nightmare then she gets better for awhile and back to another week of devils child!

    It's absolutely normal!! My son isn't at that age yet, but I was a nanny for 5 years and went through the terrible 2's with both kids, as well as having helped raise some of my nieces and nephews, so I can still say with authority that while it's a major pain in the butt, it's totally normal! The best thing you can do while she is throwing a tantrum is walk away... once she realizes that she doesn't have an audience, and that her tantrum is having no effect most of the time she should calm down. It's better for you and your blood pressure too!

    Yep, it's a sodding nightmare! "Terrible" is not a strong enough word.
