W ho’d have thought that your an­gelic baby would turn into a mini ma­nip­u­la­tor on his sec­ond birth­day? Yep, you’re now in tantrum ter­ri­tory – re­search shows that 90 per cent of two- to three- year-old’s have reg­u­lar melt­downs. This is be­cause they live in the mo­ment, says par­ent­ing ex­pert Joanne Mal­lon. “Their com­pre­hen­sion is more de­vel­oped than their speech, and this leads to frus­tra­tion. We need to teach them pa­tience and fo­cus.” As a re­sult, you’ll need to arm your­self with a new set of par­ent­ing skills. An­swer the ques­tions be­low then check your score at the end to find out how you’ve done.
