She is struggling with something

I don't know what it is, or how to help her

But it's getting out of control

Temper tantrums everyday, sometimes lasting 30 minutes, sometimes more than one

Waking in the night

Blatant disobedience, testing boundaries

I feel like she is so angry with me

Could it be the new baby?
Could it be she feels displaced?
Could it be her age? (she is 2 after all)
Could it be a reaction to uncertainty, chaos, disruption, loss......

Yes, it could.

But she's 2 and she doesn't know how to tell me except to rage

I don't know what to give her, tell her, do for her that will show I love her and that everything is going to be okay

Is everything going to be okay?

I'm worried

I don't want to screw them up!

At least she found Auntie Erin's scarf!

You won't screw her up. Of that I am sure! She is 2. She is TWO! This too shall pass. I will be praying for you friend!
