My 17 month old can be quite difficult sometimes. Screaming or crying if something doesnt go her way. In fact it seems like she is screaming and crying half of the time she is awake. It is quite tiring and frustrating!!!!! She can also be very happy, loving and sweet. But, is it normal for her to have so many tantrums??? Is this the terrible 2s early?

Sounds pretty normal to me! In my experience it gets easier as they get more able to do things for themselves. I actually found 10-20 months (give or take) much harder than 20-36 months.

Sounds normal! I found the real tantrum era to be 1 1/2, aged 2 it was a bit easier.

Okay great! Thanks for the responses. That is good to know. My husband was saying maybe she has the terrible twos early! So its good to hear others go through the same thing. We are hoping she is more calm when doesnt get her way when she reaches 2 smile

Also, I notice she does get frustrated if she is not able to do/or allowed to do what she wants on her own.
