Everyone says 'terrible 2s' except for moms who have 3-year-olds. It's an ill-kept secret that 3 can be worse and it has been. It's no cake walk for the kids either. Being 3, you're in a tricky spot, you're old enough to know how parts of the game are played, but you're missing crucial pieces to the puzzle. And worse, the people who know the game don't have a rulebook; heck, they don't even seem to know what they're doing half the time.

After all, explaining to your toddler that the American Academy of Pediatrics says screen time should be capped at two hours per day doesn't avert a tantrum. And the AAP also seems a little short on advice on what to do when you have three people yelling at you because 'Mighty Machines' is over and you're not letting them watch a third.
