Seems like a good time to learn about the time out spot!

Time out, take away her toys and or bust her ass. Let her know her behavior won’t be tolerated

Time out always works. It worked for me when my twins were born

I’ve kids from age 2 up to 26…youngest has been put in the corner since he could walk…I do put him there when he goes to far but what I will say is cut her a little slack,there so small and it’s so hard for them to regulate emotions…sometimes empathise on why there angry ect,or if she’s just over tired and needs a hug :heartbeat:They grow out if it really quick xx

Ahh, the terrible twos. If there’s no way you can control the terrible twos now, Well, God help you when those terrible teens arrive.

Best of luck
You cant properly handle them anymore because everyone and their mother got an opinion.
Try time outs. Try taking away toys. Try getting on her level-- as in height wise, get right face to face level with her and sternly tell her NO THANK YOU.
As best as a toddler can understand, it’s ok to be upset. Its NOT ok to spazz out.

You be the grown up. Don’t allow her to be aggressive .She has learned that behavior from someone that’s she seen. They only know what they see and hear. That’s how Childern learn. Time will pass also. Nip it in the butt now.

Ok. I remember my best friend telling me all about her daughter making her crazy. The attitudes, the screaming fits, climbing the walls. What I wouldn’t give to have such dilemmas!!! My baby passed away and I wanted all those blessings. But couldn’t. And here she was COMPLAINING about all these things. Trust me it could be worse!!! I wanted and wish i was chasing my child up the walls. Treasure all the things that come with a living child…please.

What works really well for my daughter when she starts being mean is pushing her away from me and telling her not to be by me if she’s going to be mean. Than I make her say sorry

Good luck 2s are rough they are trying to see whoes boss best thing is stick to the rules stay consistent

Seriously :point_up_2:Or the fuck you fours…

Exchange for a new one before you get too attached.

Jk, be firm and consistent, let her know her behavior is inappropriate and set age appropriate boundaries. At 2, time out for two minutes is a good option.

Give her a tap and sit her ass down in time out.

I have a 2 year old son. It’s so hard and so frustrating for sure. I try hard not to acknowledge his bad behavior (screaming unnecessarily, talking back, etc.) But obviously do time out when he is real bad

I have a 2 year old too. Smoke weed. It helps.

What I do with our two year old is that I do not acknowledge or reward bad behaviour… I know that he’s fed, changed etc so when he is packing a tanty I check his surroundings to ensure he is safe and then I make sure I can still see him, ie) I’m in the lounge and he’s in my hallway, and I just wait until he realises that he gets no attention from me whatsoever… Gauranteed to work as he comes right in about 5 mins and wants cuddles…
