A Tale of the Terrible Twos


What is the appropriate response when a toddler misbehaves while you're in the middle of an activity you cannot just walk away from to redirect or deter them immediately?

Here are a few examples of how this typically happens with my two year old twins:

- I'm frying meat in the kitchen, meanwhile one of the twins is yanking the curtains down, collapsing the whole rod...she knows not to do this, but does it when she knows I cannot get to her immediately

- I'm changing a messy diaper, meanwhile the other twin is knocking over clean laundry baskets or baskets of toys I've just put away

Thank you for your help.
