Your Toddler Is Almost 2

You’ll hear it often: “Watch out for the terrible twos!” But try not to let this color your view of your child at this exciting time. He’s exploring, learning new things every day—independent, but still reliant on your protection, reassurance and love.

Keep your toddler’s abilities and emotions in mind and understand that frustration, independence and occasional defiance is normal.

When you engage a toddler, using positive directives (“Let’s try doing it this way”), instead of “no” all the time, the “terrible twos” won’t seem so bad.
