Does anyone have an extremely spirited 2 yo dc (Not sure what else you would call it besides a PITA!!) What do you do to control behavior? My older dd was NEVER like this! My 2 yo dd...
is so bad sometimes, she does bad things just to get a rise out of me and laughs while doing it. I am trying SO hard not to lose my cool. I've have never spanked either dc but I feel like smacking her a million times a day. I just put her in her crib crying and closed her bedroom door and walked downstairs or else I swear I was about to hit her. She is acting terrible. what else can I do?
OP: TY! I might have to go get this today b/c I am at my witts end today. My head is pounding I am so angry and frustrated w/ her. I know, she's only 2. I need to keep repeating this...(more)9-16-2010 11:28am

either. FWIW, my sister is 40, never married - and throughout her entire life, she has never had a roommate last more than 1 yr. Nobody can stand to live with her- and she cycles through friends too - has many friends at any given time but the friendship lasts about 2 years and then fizzles -
