  • One ongoing tantrum most of the afternoon. Usually restarted when we (hubby and I) told her she couldn't help with stuff that was beyond her abilities. Fueled by frustrations and lack of sleep.

  • My three year old had a huge tantrum this afternoon. We were walking by a house where a few kids were outside playing. Being the friendly kid she is, she walks over to them and chats with them. They had toys out front, so she wanted to play on them with the kids. I let her play for about ten minutes while I conversed with their mom. When it was time to leave, she pitched a huge fit! I had to drag this crying, screaming child down the street to our home. I was so embarrassed!! She turned three last week, and it seems like the terrible twos has turned into the REALLY terrible threes!!!

  • I have two toddlers (twins, 2 1/2) and they actually had no tantrums today. Not only no "meltdowns," I think there were no tears or upsets today. It wasn't really an unusual or special day (in terms of nothing exciting or especially fun/different happening.) We were just home, their big sister (7) spent time with each boy one-on-one. They got outside a bit (which they love) but I'm on antibiotics for an infection & over the weekend developed a yeast infection that I just today got meds for (so still was not really feeling relief since they hadn't yet taken effect) so I mostly kept them in, made a nice lunch, & then tried to lie down. Everyone cooperated. Their play was really self-directed & even during conflicts, they didn't escalate & they really TALKED.
    One conflict between the boys (over a toy vehicle) I overheard one boy saying "I'm not done!" and "Stop pushing me!" which is all really stellar, & the other "heard" him.

  • Seems to me the tree's were a LOT worse than the two's. At three they learn how to talk back.
