hi! i am mommy to twin 4 year old boys. i was a single mom intil a month before their 3rd birthday. i am now married to a man other then their father. their father basically disowns them and has not been involved since 2 months. i have had to change day cares ( i work full time) due to me not liking how things were being handled. they are finally in one that i am satisfied with, so far!
theres the background...heres the problem. the "younger twin" will not stop whining, crying, back talking, screaming, tantrums, he does not listen unless he wants to. i have tried everything all which i feel bad about...i spanked, time out, tapped his mouth, put him in his room and shut the door cause i cannot take it, i have taken tv time, toys, my children dont get cndy, cake, cookies...unless special occasion. i have stopped from going to the park... everything and i have taken sometime with it... but nothing seems to work.. everybody that has them outside of myself says they are great...even my husband the baby acts better for him my biggest fear is they start pre k next month and i dont want him acting out like this in school. the "older" one is very helpful, calm, he listens...he does act out but rarely and not as bad as his brother...i have done the same techniques with both and i just do not understand....pleassseeee help me!!
mom in meltdown!
