I have 15 month old twin girls, how do you go about punishing them when they do something they are not suppose to? Examples: They like to squeeze themselves behind the tv where all the cords are and play back there, my husband and I tell them "no" and bring them back out. Next thing you know they are squeezing themselves back behind the tv again. One of them has started biting and hitting everyone when she gets frustrated. They both have started throwing tantrums when they do not get their way. When my husband and I try to scold them 9 times out of 10 they just laugh at us, they think its funny. Then we tried to put them in time out in their cribs, we would take everything out of the crib and move everything away that is in arms reach and close the door. We would go back in after 5 minutes and find them either jumping on their crib or some how entertaining themselves to where they don't care that they are in time out. Every type of punishment we have tried has failed, they either laugh at us or find a way to entertain themselves while in time out. Does anyone have any age appropriate punishment ideas?!?!
