I think we are hitting the terrible twos stage with Morgan, who will be two in October. She is up and down all day. One minute she is laughing and playing the next she is throwing a fit, saying no, and pouting and just as quick she can be back to her happy loving self.
She does anything and everything she can to be disagreeable and get her way, which at this stage is completely understandable. She is finding out what she likes and dislikes or what she wants and doesn’t want to do, and most importantly she is figuring out how to get it.
But even when she gets her ways she still throws a fit, this is where her terrible twos really show, she just loves to be difficult. Most of the time I try to ignore her but when she get so loud I can’t take it anymore or is on the verge of throwing up, I put her in a time out and tell her she can come out when she is all done.
How do you handle fits with your little ones? More importantly what do you do when you are in public? I usually let her have her way in a public setting, I know this is probably teaching her to act out even more in public but I don’t want to ruin other people’s’ time out.
