Mar 22, 2013 Meltdown We went out to dinner last night, and we experienced our son's first meltdown. When it happened my wife and I just looked at each other kind of shocked, but we smiled and found it amusing. If you saw our son's face you would have chuckled too. :) We have know idea what caused our son to behave like this, but recently people have been telling us about the so-called terrible twos. Was this the beginning of his temper tantrums? I thought we still had 6 months before this next stage? Next step is to research how to prevent the terrible twos. Any suggestions?
