My ten month old boy girl twins often pull each others hair, poke at one another's faces, and do other things that hurt their sibling. Of course I know this is normal and that I am never going to be able to stop them from fighting but I am searching for a way to start teaching them boundaries. Right now when one pulls the other's hair I say firmly "Ouch, no hair pulling" then I pick up the hurt baby and pay little attention to the offender. This doesn't seem to be doing any good. Right now my son will look at me, reach for his sister's hair, make sure I am looking, then give her hair a good hard tug. When she screams he goes after her again, giggling. What have you done to help tamp down this type of behavior? Thanks.
