    Just a note to let any troubled mothers out there - that the terrible 2's only exist for certain children lol!

    Tho admittedly some of my mates say it actually starts at 3 - but i gotta say if they do exist i aint seen any yet in my little one!

    So if you want tips on how to avoid - then drop me a line!

    They exist but it does get better. For my littlle guy age 2-3 was very trying. But he grew out of it. You just have to be consistant with them. Now at age 4 he is a well mannered little man :wub:

    :cry: he started kindergarten last week

    I have just been into the City(shopping for a dress for me ;) )

    I went with one of my best mates and her son(he is 20 months old :wub: )

    He can sometimes be a handful,but most of the time he is really adorable and cheeky.

    I love children and had to bring my brothers and sisters up(my parents were ALWAYS in the pub :angry: )

    I never had problems with them

    Bardude is cool Dot,bet he helped a lot hun. :D

    i wouldnt know how i was when i was lil but apparently i was real cheecky n asked alot of quesitons but otherwise fine :):p

    hey i know this is off topic but umm... you guys are like mums n umm... would you ever tell your child if they were adopted?? coz i am n its well annoying coz she wont tell me... i've dropped tons n TONS of hints n ive noticed alot more since... ... ...
    also if i dont have a birth certificate is it still possible for me to get a licence when the time comes :S

    If I was ever going to adopt then yes I would tell my son/daughter as for me it is important they know just how much I love them.

    As for getting licence,I assume you mean driving...so I would say that you would need to get a copy of your birth certificate(If I was you I would ask the local register of births...the telephone number should be in the phone book.)

    Hope that helps Arwen. :)

    Awww Dot!

    Before you know it, he'll be 16 and you'll be counting down the days til he leaves home and gives you some peace and quiet! I know my parents are :p

    And arwen - I'm not sure what to say except *huggles* for you, I hope you find what you're looking for :)

    Ah I think the keyword in that sentence has got to be "YET" :p

    Of course the terrible two's exist, it's an essential stage in a childs psychological development. Yes, there are some methods that will make them less terrible but avoiding them completely is not a realistic option lets face it.

    and arwen, I know it's a difficult subject to bring up, but have you ever thought about just telling your mother that you know you're adopted? It could be that she just doesn't know how to bring it up either and it may be a relief to her as well as you to get it out in the open.

    Good luck :console:

    Scariest thing that happened to me while babysitting a while back..
    Having a conversation with and 8 year old.
    Annabelle: So Cara, how do you make babies?
    Me: Errr umm welll umm you see umm yeah well um
    Annabelle: On The Sims
    Me: *Breathes a huge sigh of relief* and starts to explain.
    Seeing as i'm only 16, I haven't really thought about my child's 'terrible twos' yet, mainly cos I don't have a child and all that..
    So sorry, I can't be of much use.
    *Hugs you all anyway*

    Potholer your parents aren't the only ones. :lol:

    I agree with Thistle 'Yet' is the keyword. I think my toddlers terrible two's lasted a couple of months, days when you couldn't go without her having at least one major screaming fit.
