I'm just curious how other Chrisrtian moms discipline their children? What technique do you find works best for you? I'm ready to lose my mind lol. my twins are in the "horrible threes" phase. They both have such an attitude. everything is a battle. from eating breakfast to when we do our homeschooling lessons. Even getting them dressed is a chore. I put one in timeout and all they do is scream the whole time. (i have them in timeout for three mnutes and all I ask is that they're quiet for the three minutes) but now thats not working. I'm at a loss as to what to do. I try to be slow to anger just as the Lord teaches but I'm finding it harder and harder to keep that mindset because they are getting more out of control everyday. They used to be so sweet and now they're like little terrors. so i really need some advice. thank you.Answer Question

LOL if you think they have an attitude now, wait until they are tweens!
Pick your battles and provide choices whenever possible. Your twins are trying to assert some control over their own lives and they are doing it the only way they know how. By providing choices you are giving them some of that control. For instance, let them choose what they want to wear. Give them a choice of 2 or 3 things for breakfast and if they still don't eat it, then take it away and let them go hungry (just for a little while). They will soon learn that you mean business but it will get worse before it gets better.
