How do I get my twin one year old boys to play nice?

They beat and pick on each other but when i separate them, they get upset and sad.

  • HA if you find the answer to this please let me know. my twins are one and take things from each other constantly. one is a biter and one is a hitter. its soo hard at this age since they dont understand not to do it, why they shouldn't do it, or any direction you give them about not doing it.
    the only thing I can think, (but haven't tried yet) is seperating them. I heard one mom say once she actually put them in seperate play yards. I dont' have enough room for that, plus they hate being confined in such a small space anyway.
    good luck though
