My twins, a boy and a girl just turned 3 not to long ago.
I turned on the tv and put on Disney (Agent Oso). I'm starting breakfast and then I hear a *smack* and screaming. I run in just to see my daughter holding a doll and my son holding his face. I moved his hand and he had a big red mark from where she had nailed him with the doll's head. I took the doll from her and she actually screamed at me!
I asked her why she would do that to her brother and she said her brother was being too loud, meaning his singing to the show. I sat down on the couch and told her to come here. She didn't want to and said no. When I got up to get her she started the screaming and crying and having a all out fit. My wife had just got out the shower and was like what is going on, so I told her.
I grabbed my daughter and put her over my knee. I gave her two smacks on the butt with my hand. She was crying and kicking her legs. And her mom picked her up and is mad at me for spanking her. I was like I'm not going to let her do things like that. And I'm like what about her brother who just took a blow to the face! So she put our daughter down and hugs him too.
My wife is so soft when it comes to the twins. She'll learn soon enough, when they are running all over her I guess. But in the meantime, I'm not going to let them run over me or each other.
