Both boys are 3 years old and no there not twins there 8 months apart in age lol

I would def. use the positive behavior technique. I saw that it really helped for my daugther. Stickers, little candies, or something else for doing something nice without being asked. Another thing that I do for my daugther is give her choices. Such as, no you cannot cut with scissors right now but you can color with markers/crayons or you can play with stickers. Something so that she feels like she has some kind of control. Most of the time they seem to be looking for independence so giving them limited choices (I try to stick to 2) of things they can do instead might help. Also, I am a frim believer in taking things away for bad behavoir. Good behavior is rewarded, bad behavior is punished. Hopefully it will get her to understand that her actions have consequences. ?? Let's hope.

maybe try rewards for good listening and behaviour, go to the park or something they enjoy if they do the right thing. or hold there favorite toy or dvd ransom until they listen and do what there told. Try destracting them also maybe.Maybe even a chart. good marks get rewarded bad marks go without.

This is a hard one. Three year olds especially since you have two of them, are testing there limits and pushing to see how far they can go . Consistence is going to help a lot. when dealing with time out they should be put in there from more than there age time out=3 minutes. I have gotten a lot of ideas from Super Nanny. I take bits from the show that i like and use it. Their time out tactics have been really helpful. her is a link i havent read through it but it has different disciplines for different issues... http://www.supernanny.com/Advice/-/Your-...
