Your Toddler at 27 Months Old

Be prepared for some major outbursts and tantrums.

Babies development 27 months

Things will get busy once your toddler builds his/her language and cognitive skills. They’ll want to talk (all the time), follow their own thoughts and do as they want. Naturally, some days will lead to tantrums and frustrations — pretty common things in 2 two years old who are still trying to learn their thought process and appropriate behaviours.

The best way to deal with an upcoming tantrum is to distract him/her straight away. Use a toy to get his attention, or point out something out of the window. It doesn't have to be particularly interesting, it just has to be enough to take his mind off his grievance for a few seconds.
If things go out of hand (particularly in public) it’s best to remove the toddler from the situation.

You may feel your own temper rising but you’ll have to be patient and wait for your toddler to calm down too.

Once things settle down, explain them the rules and the reason behind them. Talking and explaining things will make it easier for them to follow. Most children will need a lot of gentle reminders. Praise your toddler when he does what you tell him to.
