Chances are your toddler's negativism — saying "no" all the time, running away, throwing things — has probably been surging lately. He's actively testing his limits, putting his newfound mobility and ability to control his environment to use. It's your job to create and enforce those limits.

Your toddler's negativism will affect feeding, sleeping, playing — basically, every area of significant interaction between the two of you. Expect tantrums: They're common at this age, along with other types of openly negative, provocative behavior.
