: The terrible twos!!! lol
: Went my daughter went through this stage we ignored her when she threw a tantrum. The more we told her NO the more she screamed and shouted.
: In the end my mother told us to ignore her. we did and she soon lernt that she was not gaining our attention and soon stopped. And when your daughter throws a temper dont offer her anything let her get on with it, If you offer food or drinks or even toys they use their tempers to get what they want. Very crafty hey lol.
: Hope this helped
: Best of Luck

: P.S I will be going through the terrible twos again next year with my youngest daughter and im not looking forward to it, its damm hard work LOL
I am currently going through the terrible 2's with my firstborn, even though she will be 3 on Friday. She throws fits alot, especially when it's time to sit down and be quiet or whenever she's being told what to do. Most of the time I try to ignore the behavior, but whenever it's time to sit down and be quiet, I can't. I usually take her out of the room and tell her, if she doesn't sit down like a good girl and be quiet, then she won't get to stay and she'll have to go home and go to bed. That usually works, but sometimes she has to have a timeout.
It's been hard, but I know it's just a phase and it will pass, so I try not to let it get to me too much =)
