So my son is turning two next weekend. He has started not listening and just throwing tantrums. Should I chalk it up to Terrible Twos? I am doing time outs, takin aways toys, redirection but i mean he is only two he really doesnt not get all that much. Plus it is only me, his dad and him at all times. We are a Military family so we dont have any family out here and we are always together the three of us so he he maybe a bit spoiled but we do our best to control it. I need help!

Sounds like the terrible twos are hitting. Just continue to be consistent with age appropriate punishments and eventually he will get that that is not appropriate behavior. In my experience it takes some time though. Good Luck

my step son turns two this week and i think he going thru his trouble two's.... he tells us no..yell. bang his head on the floor.... he tried talking to him an tellin him not to do that we put him in time out or take his toys...sometimes make him go to bed early.......is there anything else i can do...or should we just deal with it
This is spot on. Consistency really helps him learn where the boundaries are of what he can and cannot do and what happens if he does something wrong. :)
Keep consistently giving him consequences, good and bad for his behavior choices. Things will get better. *hugs*

Be consistent with any discipline. However, get down to his eye level and explain why he's in time out or whatever the punishment is. When we stand and tower over them we just look like giant ogres. The twos will pass faster than you think, but it feels like forever.
