You mean the terrible twos end
??? LOL, I'm sorry, everyone warns you of the terrible twos, but they never tell you about 3 through 18 and beyond
We've raised two boys into adulthood, and the best advice I have to offer is "choose your battles". If its not going to matter next week, or if it isn't hurting them or someone else, consider just distracting them, or letting it go.
Like one day I found my (then) 2 year old in the kitchen floor. He was in front of the open fridge and had all kind of food out and all over the place. He had also gotten into the pans and was putting eggs and anything else he could get open into the pans.
I just laughed it off and sat down and "helped" him find something that we could cook. I fixed his lunch and cleaned up the mess while he was eating.
I could have blown a fuse and been angry over it, but whats the point? I realized he was just exploring, and that he was obviously hungry lol.
Anyway, every age has its good and bad points. The twos are just the first
year that they start displaying their independence and thats what throws us. If you look at it from the angle that they are just growing and exploring and becoming independent little critters, then maybe it will all be easier to deal with
Best of luck!
