My thoughts lately have been centering around motherhood. Some days I feel like I am failing as a mom. I am sure others have felt the same way, and I thought maybe we could work together and help each other.
My two year old has reached an age that is incredibly hard for me. She will be 3 in August and has developed a temper, entitlement, and naughtyness that can only be described as impossible. She can be the happiest sweetest little girl in the world, but in an instant it can all change. I am trying to help her "keep her happy face on", but I just don't know how to keep my patience in check when she is just being so naughty. She doesn't listen, she tells me "no" a million times a day, and she would rather sit in time out than do what I tell her to do. She is sounding like a teenager.
Since I know that so many of you have gone through this as well, I thought I would ask for any tips or advice you might have to help me not only remain calm (even through the naughtyness) and also tips for how to help my daughter. She needs to learn that she can't pull a fit in the store, she can't have what she wants all the time, and she needs to be obedient. Is that too much to ask?
