I am a first time mom and my son is coming up on the 2 year old mark in January 2015. I have heard many people say ohhh, you just wait, it will be worse once he turns 2. Is it really that big of a deal? Currently he has a few spells where he will whine because he is sleep or bored. He sometimes will also throw himself back because he is frustrated that a toy is not working how he wants. The few outbreaks that he does have is tolerable and I understand much of it stems from the lack of not being able to clearly communicate his needs. With consistent reinforcement we are hoping to break the cycle before it gets out of our hands. What are your thoughts on the "terrific twos"?
