"Terrible twos" is a common term to describe the challenging behavior exhibited by toddlers around the age of two. During this stage of development, children experience rapid cognitive, emotional, and social changes, leading to frequent tantrums, defiance, and mood swings. They may struggle with frustration due to limited communication skills and a desire for independence. Parents often struggle to manage their impulsive behaviors and navigate their growing assertiveness. Despite the name, it's a natural part of child development as they explore boundaries and assert themselves. Patience, consistent discipline, and understanding can help parents guide their "terrible twos" toward more balanced behavior.
