2 year old saying NO....

I have a 2 year old son who has been diagnosed with Sensory Processing Disorder. I do not know anymore whether the things he is doing is a 2 year old thing or a sensory thing. Does anyone else have this problem with their toddler saying no to daddy? He will push my hubby out of the room and say NO! when it comes time to get up in the morning, changing a diaper or clothes, taking a bath or any type of help what so ever, but will play and rough house in the floor with him. Other than that it is all mommy all the time. Does anyone else have this issue?

I think that at 2 children realize that they have a choice. Before then they are eager to please and are still checking life out. At 3 they realize that they can say no.. and do it all the time!! Logan did it... and my nephew who is 2.5 says no ALL the time. Sometimes he has to think about it after he says it... because he meant yes... but says no just because he can!! LOL thankfully its a stage - and eventually they will say it less... and really when they

My son turn 2 in six days, and he's been saying "no" for a couple of months.

I have the same thing with my 2 year old DS. When it comes to his night time routine he says NO if DH comes into the room and pushes him off the bed if he tries to sit with us to read the book. He also won't let DH put him to bed, it has to be mummy. However, if I am not home he is perfectly happy to let DH put him to bed. I have realised it is because I am softer on his bedtime routine than DH. I will put him in bed and then stay with him until he drops off to sleep whereas DH will just put him in bed and leave. Do you have a different way of doing things to your partner? Maybe he has just picked up on this and is going with the preferred option!

How heartbreaking for your son not to have his dad. My gosh. I hope his dad gets involved.

To the op, my 27 month old is all about screaming "no" in response to everything. I was googling last night and found an article on toddler behavior that really reassured me that it's normal. I'd link to it but I'm posting from my phone. Just rest assured that it's a 2 year old thing- trying to be independent means he has to disagree with you and dad. My son will be sweet to me and stubborn with his dad one week and the next week it's reversed. I finally saw the pattern and just don't take it personally when it's my week to be the bad guy.
