Hi, I just joined the circle of moms so I am still learning how to use this website. I am 21years old and I am a first time mother, I had my son in august 2013 and he is now 2 years old. He started the terrible twos early and I am finding it difficult to handle. I live with my partner but he works most of the day and my mother is busy with my siblings so I'm alone on this. Please if you have any advice on how to fight this stage and how to handle it more properly please comment cause I would like to do this better and stop getting frustrated cause I don't know what my son wants. Thanks :)

Routine Routine Routine. My daughter was awful at first when we hit that age but then I got a poster board and a marker and wrote down times and activities for her during the day. It looked similar to this
8- Breakfast, Diaper
9- Outside time
10- Snack time, Toy time
11- Clean Up Time
12- Lunch Time
1- Nap Time
3- Snack, Diaper Outside
Not only is it great to have the routine but going outside at least twice a day burns up some of that built up energy. But if you make the routine a daily thing. They normally fall right out of the terrible twos.
