What does Threenager mean?

A three year old behaving like a teenager

Ever heard of the term ‘Threenager’? It’s a playful way to describe a three year old kid who acts like a sassy teenager. This term isn’t just for three year olds, though. Any child who shows similar teenage-like attitudes can be labeled as a ‘Threenager’.

Kids go through many changes as they grow. When they hit the age of two, they often start to oppose and argue, a phase known as the “terrible twos.” This challenging behavior doesn’t stop there. It continues into their third year and closely resembles the rebellious attitude of teenagers.

What sort of behavior are we talking about? Well, things like being picky about food, making a fuss over what clothes to wear, and generally opposing almost everything their parents say. These are all examples of teenage behavior that toddlers often display.

So, if you see a young child acting like a mini teenager, you know what to call them. They’re a ‘Threenager’.
