I have 4 children, my first two I never had a problem with them having what they call terrible 2's, one is now 15 and the other is 3 1/2. My third child is 2 1/2 and OH MY GOD! now I know what people where talking about when they say terrible 2's, she says no when asked to pick up her toys, and if I start to pick them up myself after asking several times she will start SCREAMING and kicking and times she even throws herself to the floor. I have tired the time out, putting her on her booster seat and making her sit for a few minutes, I have tried putting her in the corner, putting her upstairs in her bedroom, and everything I try she just Screams to the top of her lungs, some of her screams actually sounds like she is being hurt. How did you handle the terrible 2's?

the thing to do is to establish a permanant time out spot and be consistent. your kid might be in time out all day. the next thing to do is not give them any negative attention - only positive attention...consistency is the key - hopefully this stuff will work for you...
