Terrible THREES????

My youngest turned 3 on June 1st. He was a perfect angel until recently. We moved into an apartment until our house is finished, and he has become a MONSTER!!! He tears things apart, won't listen, is destructive! For instance, today, he peed on the floor on purpose (he is potty trained and has very few accidents), in front of his dad and brother, and just laughed about it!

Have you had a child go through terrible threes instead of terrible twos???

  • Yes, he's 19 now. I've found all the "odd" years to be the worst: 3, 5, 7, etc.
