Terrible Twos!!!!

Erin is definitely in the Terrible Two's phase!  When, oh when is it going to end?

She gets into a tantrum practically every single day. The lie-down-on-the-floor, kick and scream type of tantrum. *sigh*. 

Source of the tantrum varies, but basically it happens whenever she doesn't get what she wants or when she's asked to do something she doesn't want to do. 

For these few days, it's 1) don't want to bathe  2) don't want to get out after bathing  3) don't want to wear clothes after bathing.

We've tried various responses - distracting/smacking/scolding/ignoring/reasoning.  (ok I admit, sometimes, when I feel like I'm reaching boiling point, I hand her to the maid and I go upstairs to cool down)

But then, when she's all fine and dandy....she's so smiley and behaves like a sweet little princess.

 See that innocent smile!
Well, sweet little princess.......until the next tantrum starts.  Aaaarrgh!

You are right... That smile is just sweet! I would never have imagined that it was just after a tantrum.

Test your patience hor? Well, continue to reason and tell her consequences of throwing temper. If still persist, proceed with consequences. They are "old" enough to understand one.

At least you take time out to cool down, but I will really give it to my kids. Haha. They want to throw temper? Let them receive some first, then they know what's the "taste!"

Chi2 - hoping so too. But my colleague told me today about the "Trying Threes". Aiyo.

Ai - hehe...will keep that in mind!

Leona - deceiving hor?

Kathy - I'm pretty sure I was a good kid ;-)

Irene - u scare me! haha. but actually, it does make sense.
