This age is endearingly referred to as the "Terrible Twos". This is mainly because children at this age learn to speak a few words and their favorite of the bunch is "no." Children also tend to be stubborn and fussy.
-When speaking to your daughter do not shout or be aggressive. Speak with her calmly and try to make her understand what she is doing is wrong. When children get shouted at it makes them want to do it more as they can see it is affecting you negatively.
- When she throws a tantrum, take her away from her toys or a crowd where she can create a scene and explain to her that she was wrong and she won't get to return to her activities unless she knows what she did is wrong. -
It is better to take away her TV or playtime when she misbehaves as this shows her that there are consequences to behaving inappropriately. If you shout and let her continue to do what she likes then she will never learn the difference between right and wrong.
- Allow her to play with siblings and children her age so that she learns how to interact and see how children her age ought to behave.
Finally, try to get some assistance when things get too frustrating. Take some time out for yourself if you find yourself too irritated or keyed up.
