Nine Things All Toddlers Hate

Nine Things All Toddlers Hate

Oh the little darlings, those contrary little bubbas! They’re all sweetness and light until something upsets them and it can be ANYTHING! You’ll never be sure what will set off today’s unscheduled (and totally uncalled for) epic meltdown – the banana they didn’t want peeled, the dog they didn’t want to look at, the cartoon they didn’t want to finish. Oh the fun! They just love to keep us guessing.

There are, however, a few things you can almost guarantee will cause a writhing, screaming, shouting shit fit so without further ado… the nine things all toddlers, preschoolers and terrible twos hate:

Nine Things All Toddlers Hate:

1. Car seats – not all the time just on the day you get stuck in a mega jam on the M25

2. Food – but only if you’ve spent hours preparing it. If it came out of a tin it’s a different story!

3. Vegetables – unless their friends are tucking in.

4. Sleep – except when you’re in the car six minutes from reaching your destination.

5. Sleeping alone – fair enough… everyone hates this.

6. Having the door closed – unless they’re up to no good.

7. Having their faces wiped – but only when you’re doing it. Grandma gets a grin and a giggle!

8. Jabs – but not as much as we hate taking them there in the first place.

9. Getting out of the bath – but you should have seen the fuss made about getting in!

    Adults conversing with each other?

    Getting dressed?

    When the iPad battery dies?

    Any less than two dozen bedtime stories?

    Being asked if they need the toilet when they are doing the wee-wee dance…
