  • Debunking The Terrible Two's
  • According to the Parenting Center at Yale University the "Terrible Two's" is an old belief that children act at their worst when they are two years old. The truth is that every year children's behavior presents challenges that parents need to address by proper guidance and discipline. As personalities vary from one person to another so do the personalities of infants. This is why labeling a child who is two years old as being in their terrible two's is fallacy.
  • Two-year olds are at a stage of learning about the world around them. They are curious which often might get them into trouble but since their brains have not fully developed they want to explore. It is important for parents to be patient and understand that their child at this stage cannot fully express themselves.
  • According to the Parenting Center unwanted behavior is most likely to occur at age three when the child is more aware of what he or she wants and is willing to behave defiantly in order to get what he or she wants. Unwanted behavior does not only occur at age two but it continues for further years. It is important to let children know when they have done something wrong.
  • At this age it is also important to praise children often. This will make them feel cared and loved. This will also help prevent tantrums or end them. Praising a child often helps encourage the wanted behavior.
