Our playroom is so quiet. I hope some of you are still around.

Sophia has been a handful since she has been 1 and a half years old. Tantrums daily. Hitting, kicking, pulling my hair. Whining, crying, you name it. Time outs every day. It was bad.

Now it's like she is testing a new strategy? Since a week she is super nice, saying "Thank you" and "please" for everything. She does what I tell her. It's like a different child. I love it. Is this just a phase and she will go back to her demanding self? I enjoy this very much but am hesitant to think that she is going to be nice from now on.

Anybody have a similar experience?

BTDT moms what's going on?

I wish I could tell you! My LO is all ____ and vinegar one minute- picking fights with her older sister and hitting us, and a sweet cuddly baby the next.

Has nothing changed in her environment? More sleep? Maybe she's leaving her terrible twos behind?

My fingers are crossed for you!

So glad things are getting better! I hope the Terrible Twos are over for you!

We have been the opposite...Claire is just now starting to give us attitude and test her boundaries. I hope this is short-lived

Im still here! Joey went thru a bad phase right around the time he turned 2, especially in the few months before his birthday. But I was also pregnant and had a baby end of august. I would say he has been better for the past 2 or 3 months, and I hope it stays this way.

I'm still around. Ellie goes through phases back and forth. Hope this is the end of the demanding phase for you!

I think when they start to communicate better the 'please and thank you' phase comes out, which is great. they start to understand consequences (all those time outs pay off after a while) and see that you reward them for better behaviour. glad that she's behaving better for you.
however the testing phase will happen again when she reaches 4ish and starts school. I am going through it with my 5 year old for the past 1 1/2 years now. It is draining!!! But eventually they do grow out of it as well.

Ross has days where hes delightful and listens amazingly well, and other days where he does nothing put throw fits

i think it comes along with the toddler years.
