I honestly feel like my DD, who just turned two, has severe anger issues. I understand that at this age they have a difficult time expressing themselves, but she seems way worse than other children I’ve seen her age. Just an example, if she wants something – say a certain toy – and she can’t reach it, she stops SCREAMS as loud as she can, throws herself on the floor, and flails her arms legs and head all over. Or if she wants something from me, like a drink of water, and I’m not moving fast enough she clinches her hands and mouth and basically holds her breath, turns red and starts shaking until I do what she wants. She was seriously a great child from birth until about 23 months, and nothing has changed, she just started acting like this.
Is this normal “terrible twos" or would you stress about it, too?
