What's the deal with defiance in 2 year olds?

July 22, 2018



In this video I answer a question from one of my lovely followers:


'My question is my almost 2.5 year old can be quite defiant and blatantly ignore instruction. Because she is quite young I generally let it go and will do whatever it is for her or something but I worry I'm not teaching her any good behaviour and setting myself up for a bratty child.'


I unpack some ideas around developmentally appropriate behaviour (hint: this totally is, haha sorry!), and also give my two key pieces of advice.
