I need to know.
We have a 3 (in a month) and 2 (in two months) year old and they are both into they're "terrible two's"
It's really getting to be too much. She has a daughter, the 3 year old, and I have a daughter, the 2 year old. Mine is just hitting her terrible two's. She's not bad yet, except in public. If I get onto her for something or try to get her to behave, she cries and screams as loud as she can. I don't know what to do.
And her child. OMG. She screams at everything, throws fits, hits, pinches, everything she can think of to get a reaction. At home, I use to time outs on her because that's the only thing she's scared of and will behave when threatened with. But in public, the screaming is ridiculous. I hate taking her anywhere.
I need advice, badly. I won't whip a child that isn't mine and I rarely even spat mine, because most times it's just not necessary. I'm not against or think anyone's wrong for it. MIne just isn't that bad. She's a good kid and listens very well, except sometimes she shows her age.
We've begun to raise daughters more like sons, but few have the courage to raise our sons more like our daughters.
