What are some of the things i need to look out for when my twin girls turn two. Right know twin A is in the bad stage of telling me no, and i have been working with her on redirection, with what to say. i am a fst time mom with twins so all of this is new to me, they are very very active so how do i get them settled a little bit more on listening.

My twins just turned 2 in June. Mine also went through a stage of saying "no" and it seemed like they didn't really understand their boundaries. Now it is getting a little easier because they are better at understanding what is exceptable and not. They do test me though and try to see what they can get away with. My advice would be to stay cosistent with everything and keep your routine. If one of them is doing something they are not supposed to do, I will warn them first telling them that if they do it again, they will have to go to time out. Usually the warning works now, bc they know if they do it... they will be in time out. Time out lasts for about 1-2 minutes, then I explain to them why they were in time out and have them say they are sorry. Hope this helps and good luck!
