almost 3 year old is turning into a sassy punk.

is this just a stage? He wont listen to anything I say and breaks down screaming and crying if he doesn't get his way. Please tell me that this is a stage and will pass with time and patience:)

  • It definitely maybe a phase, and of course it will require time and patience, however being constant and not giving into his demands would slowly cease the tantrums. He is testing his boundaries... its up to you to set them. My son did the same thing.

  • It is a stage but make sure you correct the behavior or it will become a part of his little personality.
