Hi all. I would love some advice. A couple of weeks ago and literally overnight, my darling boy went from an angel to the toddler from hell. Everything is now a battle and today ... I feel like its hit an all time high. Everything from getting changed to being mean to the cat and especially eating are now major nasties. Is this normal??? He's 21 months old and I just know its the terrible 2's, but are they really meant to be this horrible? If we ask him not to do something he just looks at us like we're mad and does it with even more vengence - even being put on the naughty spot after being warned several times has little to no effect - even though he has apologised, off he goes to get into more trouble and sometimes we've even watched him smile while he's being told off. My husband and I are starting to feel like we're just about at wits end if not already there. Can anyone help with some tips or advice or a way to deal with this period in his life.
