  • OMG YES. They are often crazy because they are easily frustrated at that age. I read The Happiest Toddler on the Block and when he would start to rant I would say, "I KNOW, you're mad, mad, mad!" And then make a mad face. Sometimes it's just that they want to know you understand. Hang in there.

  • im trying very hard these days with my own 2 year old to live by this- BOYS NEED NOISE! i wouldnt tolerate the hitting if i were you- get a hold on that. but the tearing things apart and yelling is boy stuff.

  • Wish I could say it did but things only got harder once my son turned 3.. and then 4.. While it isn't the same stuff it is still rough.
