Two year olds throw tantrums.
Every parent and ECE that works with them knows it - but at what point do you decide that a two year old's behaviour is past the line of normal?
In my centre right now there is a two year old whose tantrums and acting out behaviours include attacking (hitting, throwing toys at, or strangling) other children for no good reason, throwing chairs, and physically attacking teachers who have irked him by sitting on a time out chair.
Me, I think he is over the top and would benefit from extra support.
Another teacher thinks he is just being a typical terrible two year old.
What do you think?
