lol great!!! Thanks ladies for all your help and kind words of encouragement. I usually use the word "no" to say no more snacks now cause it is almost dinner time. Or if I say no don't touch Mommy's phone even if I say be careful you are gonna hurt yourself she gets mad. It really depends on the day as to what is going to upset her. I've heard when they turn 4 is when they are even worse than two cause by then they think they know everything. lol I can hardly wait. Thanks again for the help.

I'd just get used to it. As lovely as they are, all kids can be buggers. LOL. I have 3 girls so far with twins on the way and I have learn't to accept that sometimes they are just painful but most of the time they are beautiful.

Unfortunetly I have to tell you, three is waaay worse! I thought two was rough but at three they are a little smarter and learn how to manipulate you with their cute face and silly grins. I don't mean to scare you, it isn't all bad or anything. We have a lot of fun together too. I find my three and a half year old doesn't throw tantrums, she will just carry on like she didn't even hear me, so I'll say it again, still doesn't hear me. I usually end up threatening to put her in her room or down for a nap before she hears me. It's frustrating but it is getting better and your situation will too.

aww im sorry to hear that. have you got a partner to help you get through this? my daughter also used to get upset at the word no. it depends what youre saying no to, like, are you saying something like 'no you cant play right now because it is dinner time?' or 'no, its time to go to sleep?' or 'its time to go home now?'. ive found that giving my daughter warning as to when something she enjoyed was going to be over helped difuse the tantrum situation. or trying to not use the word 'no' [i know its very hard] and replace it with something else.

if you give me examples of what you say that kicks off a tantrum i might be able to help further? x

Sorry the rest is: if you use the word "no" or anything else she doesn't like she throws herself to the floor and screams at the top of her lungs. I don't know what to do I get so mad when she screams I don't even know what to do. She isn't even two yet and that scares me that I won't be able to make it through.

carry on, the question wasnt fully printed. id be willing to help you if you dont mind accepting help from a younger mum. my daughter is 2 and a half and we seemed to have passed the terrible twos, but its a bumpy ride, and its perfectly normal so dont doubt your parenting abilities x
