Yes, they are all annoying. Which is why they are also so damn cute; it’s nature’s way of preserving the species.

They’re all annoying sometimes. But some are much, much worse than others. Your nephew sounds like he was having a bratty day.

@geekspice:  Agreed, they all have their moments.

However, they are definitely not all like that all of the time. The population wouldn’t be as high as it is if they were! ๐Ÿ˜‰

ETA: behaviour like that would absolutely not have been tolerated by my parents, at home or in public, but I’ve definitely seen many a toddler having a tantrum in the middle of a store somewhere! It is a bit of both nature and nurture, I think.

@lsimpson:  No, only other peoples’ toddlers are annoying. LOL

 

Seriously, it’s part of the necessary stages of growth and development to push the boundaries and try to be independent.

In addition to what @julies1949:  said, remember that children thrive off of routine and being with you for 5 hours is something that he is not used to and it’s quite reasonable to expect that he would act out in frustration.

I’m inclined to think that everyone else’s children are Evil Brats from Hell… and that my future children will be just perfect ๐Ÿ˜› Lol!

They are all so different. I have 2 nephews both 2 1/2 one is a pleasure to have so adorable and the other is a real sook and demanding. It all comes down to their personality!

They all have their moments but some are worse than others. My niece is almost 2 and she’s a doll. Sure she throws the occasional tantrum but for the most part she’s a really chill 2 year old. 

 

My nephew on the other hand. Holy crap he’s the most annoying child on the planet. And that makes me feel like a horrible aunt but he is a total brat. He’s been that way the entire time I’ve known him (he’s my newphew by marriage not by blood so I’ve known him since he was 2…he’s now 5). Talk about a hand full.
