Terrible Twos?

I have a 2 1/2 yo son. He has been a terrific kid until recently. He won't listen to me and laughs or mocks me when I'm trying to talk to him. He is hitting the dogs and making these terrible throaty noises and runs around like a madman. Is this just a phase? Anyone had to deal with this.

Wow sounds just like my son! I have been having the same problem. He will be 3 in a few months. The last 6 months he has developed this attitude! I have just been trying to be consistent with him, following through with what I say and ignoring the tantrums. This has seemed to help. I think at this age they are a little lost because they want to be independent so badly but they still need you for almost everything and I think it's gets really frustrating for them. I try to keep that in mind on those days where I think I might lose my mind LOL!
