I have 3.5 year old twin boys and it seems like lately all I do is yell. And I am starting to see very clearly that they are learning from me - their first response to problems is to scream at each other or me.
One of the hardest things for me is when they don't listen to me, or they are constantly talking at the same time, and fighting and just won't stop to listen to me... It drives me insane and I feel so totally powerless and I start to yell. The (one of the) crappy thing is that I KNOW it doesn't work. I KNOW it's not helping anything and just making things worse, but I just feel at my wit's end and don't know what else to do.
How do you get your twins to 1) learn to take turns talking and 2) stop talking and listen when you need them to.
And is it just the age that when I talk to them - trying to explain things - they seem to not hear a single word? I tell them something and then ask if they understood and instead of answering they just tell me something totally random. It feels like beating my head against a wall. Help!
