Terrible Two’s

I know of terrible two or I should say I have heard of terribles two’s my son is 22 months and I am sure I am experiencing it. Seriously sometimes I wonder if I created this child. How can  he be so stubborn or so rude. My son does not behave the same way with his father, when disciplned he accepts it and behave so why does he not listen to me or why does he act out when I discipline him. I am at a loss for words. There are days when I wish I could just disappear, go somewhere for a month and not hear from anyone. I love him but why does he throw those tantrums?
