This is my 2 year olds new thing! She is fighting everything from baths, to what she wears and on and on! Every time she does not get her way she screams this at us! Please say 3 is better!

Sorry 3 isn't usually better. Lol. It gets better about 4.

At three, their vocabulary expands.  Wait until they are 5 or 6!  It is normal, though... she is discovering her voice and the power of words... even if she really doesn't understand the context.  Just tell her, "Yeah, I know, but I still love you to the moon and back!"

well they said Terrible twos. Horrible threes and F8king fours.   Good luck !  You get a few year's break then they turn 9 or 10 and they get into pre-tween mode ... that's the mess I'm stuck in now NOT. FUN.

Ok....here's the hard truth...23 is better. :-) I once read a meme that said 'No one can parent teenagers, you just survive it, and some day they're people, too'. Try to give her options, just one or two, and let her 'choose' everything she can. Like, green dress with tights or blue t shirt and skirt. Say you are getting ready for bed in 10 minutes. Do you want a tub bath or a shower? Just calmly ignore what she screams at you and say you'll talk to her when she calms down. Then just walk away. 

Hugs, and yes, tee hee, 3 is better...

Aww what a screamer. Walk away and leave her at it. She'll tire herself of her screaming ways. It does get better in a couple of years, hopefully. Fingers crossed mama
