Age two isn’t always pretty. “Do it self!” my daughter wails every time I try to do ANYTHING for her (sound familiar to anyone out there?).
But age two can be incredibly fun and less stressful than we think, says Early Childhood Development specialist Samantha Sawyer of Brightening Connections. Changing your mindset and parenting patterns about the “terrible twos” can help create breathing room for both you and your child, changing the entire dynamic of your relationship.
