    I was talking to my best friend about this. We both have 2 year olds. DS is turning 3 in December. Neither of us believe the terrible 2's is that bad. I don't find DS's behaviour any more trialling than when he was 1. I'm sure that I'll get double the trouble when he's 3 though.

    Omg this made me laugh so much! No offense. I understand, DD is 8mo and has looked at me from day dot like "Yeah? And what are you gonna do about it?" I'm not looking forward to her learning the word 'no'! She has plenty of ways to say that already lol!
    Also I nannied a three year old and we called it "triple terrible threes". At two he just roared at everyone, three was hell, four much better.

    I believe the term has now changed from terrible twos to testing twos and now ts terrible threes!!

    I couldnt understand what every1 was talking about the 2's, my DS was a gem!! But then along came 3! I was shocked at how my quiet well behaved angel just up and changed overnight! I mean he is still a very good boy and I'm sure that it is worst for others, but even on the best side of the terrible 3's he is still quiet challenging at times. Not so much with tantrums, but everything else like just putting on pjs can be a struggle. I cant really explain it cause is sooo well behaved usually, its like suddenly he has become sort of independent, and if he wants something (be it a toy, or a drink or a sandwich) then he cant undertsand why he cant have it.

    I thought I was lucky (and I probably am as DS is more of a quiet boy) but I tell you what, I am bracing myself for not only the 4's but the rest of it!!!

    I tend to think all age stages alhave their challanges! My two are 8 and 4 and sheesh its hard some days from the 8 yr old with attitude and then they bring home school attitude and behaviour being around so many kids during the day.
    I even find some adults testing haha!!

    Ohh, you just wait, hehehe.

    My son has always been a beautiful natured boy. He's just turned 2 last month and just in the last few weeks he's been pushing the boundaries slightly.

    His favourite is "no no no no no no!!", to which I ignore.
    He's suddenly very squirmy and tries to sit/roll/jump while changing clothes. I firmly tell him to stop, you must stand still, etc.
    He's just getting quite cheeky, not in a bad way, but definately trying to figure out where he fits in this crazy world. No tantrums as such, just mini meltdowns like crying for no reason if he wants something.

    I'm not changing my discipline, so hopefully one day he'll realise that whatever he does won't change the outcome.

    (I don't think of it as "terrible" two's - not yet at least!)

    dd was never like this, so every kid is different, but yep, I'm calling it terrible 2's
    Temet I have nothing except that was exhausting just reading can't imagine cleaning all that mess up. They are like little tornadoes hey.
