Must be, 2 and 3 were hell for my stepdaughter and my daughter who is almost 2 now has an almost identical personality so we're expecting the same. Is he a quiet child? My two are LOUD.

Do you have a daughter or son? I know gender doesn't really matter when it comes to personalities but I could swear little boys seem so quiet compared to my girls.

Quoting Just Ames:" *blinks* My 4 year old is insanely loud and rambunctious."


LOL I was kind of hoping this pregnancy is a boy just to see if I get a quiet child.. most likely not regardless of gender.

Are their personalities completely different? Do they take after you or your husband? So far our girls are 100% like their dad personality-wise. I was a quiet, shy kid and he was always the loud clown.

:D



The public tantrums are the worst, because she knows I won't yell at her and she knows I can't pick her up and carry her or chase her. She is a stinker!

Mine are totally opposite. My girl is the sweetest darling you could ever imagine. An eyebrow raise will send her into "I'm so sorry Mommy" tears. My son? He is the hitter, screamer, biter who tests me and challenges me at EVERY turn. lol

Yeah definitely. My daughter is friendly with everyone and my son is more shy around people he doesn't know. They have a lot of the same traits but they are still ver different. My daughter is more like me while my son acts more like my husband.

They are just too smart for their age! They totally take advantage of us when they know they can. Little brats! haha

lol. I was stubborn and hard headed and THAT is my son, haha. I personally think it's punishment from thinkign I was such a great parent with my daughter. I was just all "look, she's so perfect, so well behaved, I know EVERYTHING about parenting!"



And then I get stuck with him, lol. I think it was karma's little joke, to teach me I didn't actually know anything, because you just have to learn as you go all the time, haha

I am so sorry you are going through this with your daughter. I know how frustrating and uncomfortable it can be when our toddlers decide to express their disagreement so vocally. The non-profit I work for has a great article on their website that has some creative ideas about overcoming this season in our child's life - http://bit.ly/17pLQ0y. I hope it helps!!
