I am mom to the sweetest little girl ever, HOWEVER, it's like there is a tiny, invisible switch inside her with two positions: angel and demon. Diapers, meals, bedtime, anything she doesn't want is a such a battle. I know that "terrible 2's" is just a stage, but I'm not sure I can handle it! I dread bedtime every night and walk out of her room so worked up all I can handle is flopping on the couch and watching tv for 2 hours before I go to bed.
How do you handle the persistent battles that you know are coming without losing your head (and ruining the rest of the night)? I'm not sure I can handle anymore battles of will without having a meltdown myself!!
