I met with a woman across the street and she has 3 kids one is 6, 4 and 2. They all play with my daughter. But my dd plays the best with the 2 yr old. Anyway, this little boy is MEAN! And he has a hell of a temper on him as well! Well he will frequently just go by people and pinch him. When he is up to no good and mama see him she will go and take whatever he has that shouldn't be played with. He throws a complete fit. My dd has her days, and OMG does she. Well this boy will throw things, will hit others take other toys out of the other kid's hand. His mom is pretty strict, and he does not appear to be spoiled IMO anyway. The other 2 kids are nothing like him. She is at her wits end, and I have no idea how to help her. When he is around my daughter, he is fairly decent with her, and he does attempt to take her stuff, but she quickly puts him in his place. Its actually quite funny. She uses the 'big girl' voice that eerily sounds like me when I asking/telling her to do something.
But is this normal behavior for a 2 yr old? My dd wasn't like that. She is hard headed, but this little boy, well wow. Ideas??

But! I wouldn't put it all on gender. Birth order and age may also play a large factor in his socialization skills.
