Is there a such thing as a kid being in their terrible twos or is that just an old saying. n What are the terrible twos considered to you? My daughter never sits down unless she s sleep or sick. She talks constantly and is a busy body from the time she wakes out until she is counting sheep. I would not call my daughter bad I would just say "busy", she is a busy body.

I think 1.5 years old is the toughest age. They get into everything, some of them throw fits and their learning the art of talking back! Not a fun age-Lol. I have 4 children and the only one that didn't really go through any terrible stage was my oldest who is now 10.

Yeah they can be a challenge during these stages of life. They also start going through something when they are a teenager, I have a 16 year old also.

@LovingMyBabies I know but they are coming. My 16 year old son thinks that he knows everything and that I am a dummy. It is funny to me sometimes because I try to warn him about certain things and he do not listen. He is amazed when what I predicted came true. I told him it is a mother's ability to know what is going on without him telling me.

Is he your only child? You might as well say that my daughter is an only child because her brother is 16 years old. They have a big age gap between them.

I think that the "terrible twos" are more about children testing their boundaries and trying to establish some independence. They are starting to explore the world more and can get around a lot better, so they are very curious about everything. They do not want to hear the word "no", and they throw temper tantrums when they do not get their way, because they are also learning how to properly vent and cope with frustration and anger.

That is so true my daughter is quick to catch an attitude when I tell her no. I do catch her testing her boundaries quite often because she knows right from wrong to a certain extent.
