Every child is different. At that age there just so curious to explore things. My first son was not as bad. My second started at one and he's still going terrible, he's not two yet.

Try not to expect the worst, because people (children included) do tend to live up to what ever expectation you have for them. You will likely have some battles over independence, but tantrums are not a given. When undesirable behaviors pop up try to get them under control before they become habits for your child or yourself; your response can become a bad habit just as quickly as his behavior can become a bad habit, so you want to make sure you find the best way to deal with things before they get out of hand. If you want good ideas for dealing with undesirable behavior in ways that have worked well for a lot of people check out Love & Logic; the techniques are great for little ones all the way through teens. I've also heard good reviews of 1,2,3 magic. Even if you choose not to use the techniques, the anecdotal stories will give you some ideas of what you might expect, and being prepared never hurts.
