Thanks a ton for sharing this discussion. Well i can understand your situation and i know how it feels like when u see things getting destroyed in front of your eyes. To be very honest, small kids generally find breaking things as a means of getting pleasure. hence they need to be handled in such a way that they develop a fear whenever they would be touching any thing. So better talk to your sister and ask her to make him understand regarding this. What say?

Hey Subhojit10, thank you for this response, i have talk to her she knows exactly what he does, because he breaks up her stuff at her house. The thing about him is he breaks up my stuff and she doesn't think enough to replace it now that is crazy right. If any things where broken by mine I would step up and natural say here you go to replace that because money grows on trees but it don't grow on trees if you know what I mean lol!!!:)

I have a nephew who lives with with us for about a year who also acts like that. The moment they leave my house, there's so much that needs to get repaired. My bathroom shower is broken, my living room set need a change (upholstered is not advisable anymore) My wall needs repaint due to scratches and Pentel pen writings. Not to mention the broken glass- I have to buy new sets

Hi Jaiho2009, Thank you for your comment. I think you stated some really real and true statements. I have to ask does his mother or parents try and repair the damages that he has mess up or broken? The things he has mess up seems like a lot to try and repair on ones on dime.

Kids at that age are highly active. They do not seem to feel tired. To lessen all the running in the house, maybe you can give him a toy that would occupy his time. That would help somehow save your house from being wrecked!

Hi jenny1015, thank you for your comment. I think you are so correct in saying that they are really active at this age. I think that they are too hyper, it's like he ate a whole bag of candy and a bag of sugar and just runing and runing like crazy like nothing will just have him layed out sleep lol til late in the night just don't get no break lol !!!:)

It ends when he is a man and is about 30-35 then mid life kicks in and you have a whole other ball game to prepare for. About 3 or so depending on the child's learning ability.

Well that sounds more then terrible two's. You need to put your foot down. My daughter is 23 months and yes she is going throw that 2 stage of life she turns 2 in a few weeks. My daughter does all kind of things but you have to discipline or they never learn to listen and behave just do as they please weather it's right or wrong. When I leave my daughter with other people she doesn't listen well because she knows she can walk all over them and get what she wants. Now with me and my husband that is different she can't get away with it and she doesn't walk all over us instead she listens does as she is told for the most part. She might fuss but she gets over it quickly.
