YES! My daughter was dream when she was 2 and then she turned 3. I always said no body warned me about 3! She was sassy and thought she knew everything.
Just keep up with reminding her how important respect is and listening to your parents. With my daughter sending her to her room worked well as a punishment and when she does something right praise her.

OMG the terrible 3s are even worse, i'm thinking that the terible 2s were bad no they get worse, my son just seems to push every button and answers me back now. so i find myself sending him to his room alot, i'm even starting to take toy's away from him as punishment to see if he will behave. i just hope that it will get better before his baby sister arives when he will be 3 1/2 but he still now's who the boss is let's hope it passes sooner rather than later.

Ha! I alwasy say "forget the terrible twos. it's the terrible threes!" I agree with Renee. With my son, I give him a chance by by trying to talk to him and if that doesn't work, then he goes to the time out chair. I also encourage the good things he does as much as I can. Always hearing no no no isn't good. They need to hear about the good things they do too! I think they are just at that age where they want to see how far they can push. Us as parents need to stay consistent and firm and this will pass...I hope...lol
