Im literally going to jump off a freaking bridge. Everyday is freaking HELL and i dont enjoy it at all. Everyday is another crappy day because my dd decides to be a total brat. Not one second can she just behave. Im losingh my mind and am so freaking exhausted. How did you ladies get threw this hell? When does it get better? For the ladies that will tell me to go get myself checked for depression, i am NOT depressed im just sick of this and every normal human being is allowed to feel this way without being freaking depressed.

I would go through the terrible 2's 10x over in exchange for having to go through the teen years!

The twos aren't anything compared to threes. Brace yourself mama.

I know it's normal for toddlers, but maybe check what food she's eating? I've read that artificial colors, like red, can have an impact on behavior.
My daughter just turned 2, so I'm waiting for the tantrum phase to begin myself!

You get through it with patience, consistency, and a lot of redirection.

Just keep reminding yourself this is normal and be consistent.
Stay calm, speak in a calm voice.

Three is when the real "fun" starts. My kids were angels at two. Three.... well.... yeah... not so much.

Brace yourself for the 3's, they were way worse than the twos. We have 1 more month of the 3's, we have 3 year old twins so double the fun, I'm hoping the 4's will bring back just a smidge of my sanity. Good luck
