Ok so ive accepted the fact that DD (2.5 years) is going through a pahse of not wanting to eat, listen, and be nice () but HOW do i get through the phase without going completely insane??
I think the biggest issue i have is the fact she wont eat dinner...i was trying to relax about it but its so hard. While i have started feeding her ONLY healthy stuff during the day (for my peace of mind mostly) i know shes hungry at dinner time but she refuses to eat. I end up leaving her dinner on the table and she picks over it during the night.
She also, wont listen to me (or has selective hearing) and shes generally a pain in the neck. I feel like im fighting with her constantly to do what i want...even trying to dress her is a nightmare. I feel like all im saying her her is 'dont do this or dont do that'. I feel horrible most of the time when i realise all ive said to her is 'No' and 'Dont' all day!!
It makes it 100 times harder when DS (5 months) is unsettled or being feed (BF).
HELP, im getting so frustrated with everything.
So my question is How do you survive the terrible twos??????
