Any advice or tips on how to get through the next year without going insane? I've heard terrible two's can be bad or really bad. I've already seen some bad fits my little girl goes through.

Just take it a day at a time....use consistent discipline (2 min time out, ect) and positive redirection.

Just wait till you get to 3. It's even worse than 2!

Like if they are fighting over a toy or starting a meltdown be like "oh this picture needs to be colored or no one is playing with this toy...or OH its snack time". I think if you anticipate the worst it'll tend to be the worst. Just start everyday thinking it'll be a good day and go with the flow and you'll be just fine.

I feel like 3 is a worse age! I would make sure u are very consistent with discipline. Time outs work great.

It really depends on the child. My oldest started terrible 2's when she was one and didn't get better until about a year ago. (She's 6.5 now.) Though my second DD never had the terrible 2's. Good luck! :)
