So what happens when your kid reaches the age of two? Many parents panic when they have to deal with this phase. And this will go on for another year or two. Your kid becomes more active and naughty during this period and you will find it hard to handle them during this period.
The early stages

This can lead to many problems. Until they experience or learn, everything is neutral to them and this is where the danger lies. So, they don’t attach a value to objects and this can lead to the destruction of valuable objects like mobile phone, electronic device etc. In short, potentially everything can be dangerous.
