    My son skipped the terrible 2s and was an absolute delight, but I think I thought that because he was a shocker of a baby, so in comparison 2s was awesome. But yeah
    ... Then came the 3s...watch out! Lol

    Not all kids go through the terrible twos quite a few kids in my mothers group have similar natured kids to my DS. Although one or two are tandrem throwing and smash things on my DS head or everything is mine mine mine. All kids are different. I'm trying to get my DS to stand up for himself.
    Very true what you say, some kids are just gentle natured and quiet little souls :-) Not to boast but my son has only thrown 1 tantrum in his whole 5 years of life, im not kidding! And that is WITH an Aspergers diagnosis! The way his paed put it was some people internalised, some externalise.. Kids are the same. My son has always been a more... Quietly angry and sulky type rather than a loud vocal type.

    Same with adults all around us. Some people are very vocal, will vocalise any minor grievance, while some just take it all on board inside.

    My ds never really went through a bad terrible 2's phase. Every child is different. You understand your child better as they get older and they can communicate better and so it does get easier in so many ways! Don't worry!

    No terrible twos here......we did though have to take the onslaught of the tiresome threes and now the frustrating fours ....bracing ourselves for the fearsome fives

    Lets see, in the last few days my ds (almost 3) has..
    shoved a dvd in the dvd player and destroyed it, gotten into the dvd case about 15 times after being told no repeatedly, sprayed powder all over the house, unravelled a whole roll of toilet paper, drawn all over the walls in permanent black marker, gotten the toilet brush and wiped it all over the tv, ripped up a couple of library books and other assorted bits of rubbish he found in the bin, wrecked the curtain cord, gotten into the freezer and emptied items all over the dining room, thrown more tantrums and gotten in more fights with his 5 yr dd than I care to remember..
    dd was never like this, so every kid is different, but yep, I'm calling it terrible 2's

    My son screams ... as if he is being murdered ... because i won't let him havr what he 'needs'wanted (read wants, i NEED it is his favourite statement),

    He kicks, hits, slaps, spits &a throws his toys.

    He can go from happy to screaming uncontrollably to the point he almost pukes,

    He is just started, next will be back chat, refusal to co-operate and maybe if i am super lucky he'll continue this biting thing he's had a crack at

    I was another one who was smug with my little angel two year old... then she turned three. I have no idea where 'terrible twos' comes from its 'terrible threes'!!! And someone said to me the other day, "then comes f#@king fours". Joy.
