  • Since when does ADHD have anything to do with terrible twos?

  • It's possible it could be ADHD....but...I wouldn't worry about that yet, all 2 year olds throw horrible temper tantrams and are "hyper"...actually so are 3 year olds! Just fasten your seat belt and enjoy the ride!

  • I wouldn't concern myself with ADHD just yet. Probably more like terrible two's. I have a 2 1/2 year old that throws tantrums if she doesn't get her way. It's just part of growing up...I wouldn't have him evaluated for ADHD until school, if it's still posing a problem.
