Handling toddler temper tamtrums, especially the ones in public places, have got to be the biggest challenge, as of now. Also, it's nearly impossible to relax in public outings because I'm always on edge trying to predict my active toddler's next move and keeping him out of harm's way. So I'd say I don't find joy in going out to visit other people's homes or social gatherings, because I find them to be way too stressful with a naughty toddler, who will either break something and/or get hurt ,if I as much as blink for a second.

i spent 2 years trying to get my 12 year old transferred to a new school because he has been bullied by not only students for 2 years but then last year a teacher decided to start in on the action too! Then instead of treating my son like the bullied victim the district tried treating him like a "troubled child!" Finally we got a new vice principal and she did more for my son in the first 2 days of school the the other staff had done for him in 2 years! Not to mention he had been going to the same school since K!

My 4 year old's attitude! Oh man I love her to death but she is defiant and doesn't listen at times and my DH and I just want to tape her mouth shut! Other times she is so sweet and we play and have fun then others she turns into a little monster!
