Wow, the 3s are SO MUCH WORSE than the terrible twos! Lucas is 3 going on 16 and has the attitude to prove it.

  1. Agreed. Wondering how the twos got the name ‘terrible’ over the threes!

  3. I love the term “threenager”! I am going to start using it in practice. 🙂 I have teenagers and we are going through this all over again. The terrible two’s and three’s happen for a couple of reasons. It partly occurs because at this stage they are transitioning from fully relying on mom and dad to becoming increasingly independent. Also, from 1 to 3 years of age toddlers are going through a tremendous cognitive explosion, however their ability to express themselves doesn’t typically develop as fast. Both of these can be very frustrating for both the toddlers and the people caring for them. Hang in there, it gets easier!… Oh and… You’ll go through it again in about 10 years, only teenagers can fully “use their words”. 😉

    2. Oh my, I need to read this to my husband because it will all make sense to him now! We have 2 girls that will be 3 next year and have heard the term “threenager” being tossed around a lot lately with some friends and we really were under the impression that it gets easier ha ha guess not!
