Good Parenting Tips – The Terrible Twos

I will never forget the day…it was the later part of 2005 and my wife and I suddenly found out we were having twins. Wow! That meant we were going to go from one kid to three in a very short period of time. More than we had bargained for and it later turned out to be a blessing.

However, when we hit the “Terrible Twos” with the twins it was utter chaos. What worked for one kid just did NOT work for the other.

It drove us crazy!

After many failed attempts and losing a lot of our hair, thank goodness we figured it out. We finally understood why things were different from the two, outside from one being a girl and the other a boy.

Suddenly the terrible twos was a thing of the past, a cliche we didn’t have to deal with any longer. And, it had everything to do with the internal language each of our kids spoke. One of those “Good Parenting Tips” we had no idea about. LOL

Before we knew it, the terrible twos was a thing of the past, a cliché we no longer had to deal with any longer. And, it had everything to do with one thing…

The internal language each of our kids spoke.

One of those “Good Parenting Tips” we had no idea about.

Each of our twins spoke a different language. For example, for my son, “let’s go to bed” meant “let’s fight about this because I don’t want to go to bed.” So we had to change our approach to allowing him to set a time to go to bed by giving him two options to choose from. It worked like a charm.

This single tip alone changed how our kids reacted to us when it was bed time and it made us feel good that they understood us and were listening.

Much success to you,

    wrote the book in it or something. I think that you could do with some pics to drive the message home a
    little bit, but other than that, this is fantastic blog.
