  • They are too young to play cooperatively right now. Keep them interested in age appropriate things and supervise constantly.

  • I forget the official wordage for this age, but the BEST you'll get from them right now is playing side-by-side, but doing their own thing. They won't really start interacting until 3 or 4.

  • Just one more thing.............when the time comes you can show them how to take turns. Now you can even start showing what gentle touch is and sit with them and have fun. GL!!

  • They both are getting better at being gentle. We have taught them as soon as they started crawling and walking to be gentle because we do have a dog and he is old. But i hope it wont be as hard as im thinking. They do share a little bit now.
