D+D on PBS: What’s So Terrible About Two-Year-Olds?


Tell anyone you’re the parent of a two-year-old, and you’re bound to hear a response like this:

“Uh oh.”

“Good luck!”

“The Terrrrrible Twos…” (Cue spooky haunted house music here.)

It’s true that two-year-olds have a serious reputation for being The Worst. But in our latest article on the PBS Parents website, we ask the question, “Are two-year-olds really any worse than kids of other ages?”

Read this article to find out our answer to that question, plus learn lots of interesting stuff about two-year-olds, including:

  • How many tantrums they throw each week
  • How long those tantrums typically last
  • How those numbers compare with kids aged 1 to 4
  • What pretending, jumping and disembodied eyeballs have to do with any of this

Seriously. Disembodied eyeballs are in there.

If you enjoy the other things we write – like this totally free website, or our reasonably priced and worth-every-penny parenting book Think Like a Baby – then we’re pretty sure you’re going to love this article too!

So what are you waiting for? Go check it out immediately!
