I have a pair of twin two year old toddlers. It always seem like i cant control them, they seem to fight all the time and don't listen. I know there only two but what can i do get them to listen and stop fighting.

Well first of all, give yourself a break;) You do have twins first of all, and that can feel overwhelming and they are also at the fun age, "the terrible twos", lol. I've never had twins but I do have 3 children. They are now 11, 8, and 7. There are many ways to get your kids to listen, but it can be hard when they are so little. I started using the corner. Or putting them in "time out". That taught them to behave a little better. Even if they are two, they are at that age where they understand what no means. My boy especially hated being put in timeout, which for him was in the corner. It was a success for me because he knew once I told him no, if he didn't behave after that first warning, he knew exactly where he was going, no matter how much of a fit he threw. The thing that will help you the most when disciplining your children is sticking to it, if your kids see that once you say no and you don't give in to their fits they will realize, you mean business and they'll maybe act a little better next time. Best wishes to you:)

I feel you. I raised irish twins and to me that is the best thing that i had. They never fought and always stuck with each other. they were best freinds and still to this day get along great.
