Toddlers. You can’t live with them, you can’t live without them. Parents often describe them as “terrible twos” and “threenagers.” Anyone who has ever had the pleasure of raising a child would agree there are days where watching a toddler is easily more entertaining than television.
According to Baby Center, most find what tends to make a child happy to be a little surprising. And anyone who has raised a child would agree that statement couldn’t be truer. Stop and think about it for a moment: have you ever found yourself watching your toddler cracking up at something while having absolutely no idea why they find said thing so funny?
Per Parents, the key to having a well-behaved child is letting your child learn to control his or her own behavior. This means you give your child a chance to explore the world – learning what is wrong and right along the way with your guidance. And as your toddler is exploring the world? Well, they tend to do some hilarious things.
In fact, here are some funny tweets that perfectly describe raising a toddler.
1.) Sometimes when a toddler tries to help… They only tend to make things worse.
The 3yo insisted on helping me put all the laundry away. It's only taken us 6 hours & 10 minutes & apparently pants go in the fridge now.

Part of the reason why toddlers are so entertaining and funny is because of how much they learn at that age. According to the ABC Learning Center, the average toddler learns five new words every day. The average toddler also tends to have better hearing than an adult. Hence their ability to hear you unwrapping a candy bar from another room, as one of the tweets mentioned. And you know how one of these funny toddler tweets mentioned wanting to bottle up their toddler’s energy? Well, the average toddler takes 176 steps a minute. Just imagine how fit you would be if you had the energy of a toddler!
