Hey moms! just wanted to see if anyone elses children have been acting out and being defiant. My son can get very cranky for no reason he also has been hitting, punching, pinching, biting the whole 9 yards. I believe this is all part of the glorious "terrible two" stage :) (lucky us). Funny part but gets me upset is when he says "no i not a nice boy, im mean" lol kids! So any tips on how to deal with all this without getting stressed. We try to calm him down and talk to him when hes frustrated-that kinda works. We made "rules" for him. he recites the rules. No hitting, no fighting, no biting, no pinching etc.
