My two year old is so frustration lately. Her NEW favorite word is "no". Her response to anything and everything is no. She doesn't want me to hug her or kiss her...if I try, she gets upset and treats me as if I'm trying to murder her or something. She has always been a picky eater, but lately she doesn't eat much of anything besides raisin bread and graham crackers.
Today she threw a million tantrums in the store because she wanted to run around, grab things off of the shelves. Now that she's refusing to sit in the cart, my "quick trips to the store" aren't as quick!
I've just about given up. I feel like she doesn't love me anymore. After all I do for her everyday, this is the thanks I get. I'm sitting here in tears, wondering how I'll ever be able to take her out in public again, knowing that she's a bomb waiting to be set off.

I think this is a normal stage that all two year old go through. They are enjoying all the new skills they have learned and get frustrated when they cannot make those new skills work. My Grandmother told me that how a child is at age two, is how they will be at age 16. And from personal experience, my dd and ds did the same things and it was repeated right around the time they wanted drivers license. Good luck. If you think this is something more going on, bring your concerns to your pediatrician. Good luck. It really does get better, I promise.
