Our expert says:
The average 2 year-old would probably make a Mother Theresa swear - they are designed to be exhausting. That's part of their developmental tasks, and yes, hard to handle. Don't beat yourself up for not finding it easy to handle. DO have a checkup with your GP about the possibility of a depression and/or anxiety disorder ading to your difficulties, as those can respond really well to treatment and counselling.
And let go of some of the urge to control the uncontrollable. 2 year-olds are tireless, compared to any other normal mortal, and we CANNOT keep up with them. And while i's pleasant to have a tidy house, this isn't pracical with a rampaging 2-year-old. Without giving up your general standards, learn to tolerate their disorder ( there's a useful difference between disorder and dirt ) until they grow out of this phase.
