This is actually my first post. OK my daughter just turned 2 last month she is very intelligent, energetic, loving, silly, she also plays well with other children and enjoys being in the company of her peers. I love her very very much but she's very exhausting. I know at this age they get into everything and that's normal but I wonder if her temper tantrums are. She has a twmper tantrum over anything. Examples:
Leaving the park (even if we've been there for 2 hours) having to leave her cousins after a play date, if we're in the store and she has to sit in the stroller, if I tell her to put a toy back while we're in the store, if I make her put her slippers on sometimes if we're crossing the street she won't want to hold my hand when it's time to cross and she'll break away from me and throw herself to the floor. She always wants to do what ever she wants And doesn't like to comply with simple things. It's frustrating because she cries and tantrums out the day more than she doesn't. I don't understand this I play with her she has both parents And other relatives that love her. She's always been a cry baby ever since she was a newborn but I figured by now that would have stopped. She doesn't act this way at all when she's with her cousins she behaves great, she doesn't see them a lot and she's the only child so when the weathers nice I take her to the park everyday so that she can make friends. I don't spoil her I'm not extra hard on her either what's the issue?

Wow I am very sorry you are going through this. Firstly, good for you being a trooper and loving her through this all. I have three kids myself and have noticed that out of two of my three kids (because one hasn't even made it to a year old yet) that it can be partly terribly twos as they call it, although my eldest went through it at three years old more than two and my four year old is dealing with it now. Anyways, she might be testing the limits and boundaries, just make sure you are consistent with her when you do any sort of discipline. Don't ever feel alone, you are not the only momma who feels exhausted and deals with tantrums over everything, as I said, my four year old cries over everything and my eldest 9 yrs is super energetic and I am very low maintenance. Anyways I hope this helps in anyway. Good luck to you!
