Hi! I have boy and girl twins who will turn three in August. The boy has become increasingly defiant. He will whine and say (the typical) no! To just about anything, even when strangers say hi (so embarrassing!). I have read your terrible twos book fours times!!! As I also have a daughter turning five next month who also had a defiant stage. We put him in time out and he comes right out. We've tried beating him to the punch and letting him out literally seconds after he goes in time out like recommended in the book. He changes his behavior for a few minutes and then the next thing that bothers him causes whinning and defiance all over again. My prayers are that the second he turns three this all goes away...but let's be real here! I need help! Thanks!
