2 can be a tough year but it can also be a fun time for both you and your daughter! Toddlers learn by example...so take this opportunity to pour into her everything you want her to learn. Teach her how to share, and then teach her again, and again. It may seem like you're getting no where but she will learn! Be gentle and patient (as much as you can!). Re-direct her when she's doing something you don't like. Encourage positive playing time between her and your other child by initiating games everyone can play together...for as long as it will last. Another suggestion would be to have your 2 year old play close to you when your other child gets home so they can both have a bit of their own space for a little while.

Find some things that are just your toddlers so that she can have some special things just to herself and then know that her other toys are for sharing but those special things are just for her.

Hang in there! Be positive. Just love her as much as you can and you will both get through these busy/frustrating/trying/learning times.
