Reading these threads here, it looks like we'll just have to keep going and that this could last for a couple of years! Any support and advice would be welcome.

I have been reading the posts from other parents and can only say I am a bit relieved. I thought I had the devil's child. He is such a caring and beautiful little boy ( he is 2yrs and 8 mths) buy he has started to hit, bite and has a very bad temper. He goes to nursery 3 mornings and I have been taken aside a few times to speak about his behaviour. Yesterday he didn't get his own way and the teacher took him away from the situation, but he reacted by hitting, kicking, punching and pulling her hair. They are very nice about it, but I am mortified. I have two elder daughters and have never experienced this. I also have a 11 month old son and am praying that he doesn't follow suit.
I have tried the naughty step, stopping treats, putting him in his room for a few minutes. He starts screaming with any of these but doesn't seem to stop. I have tried talking to him about it, making him say sorry, sometimes he laughs as he is saying sorry. I have spoke to HV, but her advice was naughty step, putting in room etc.
Help, help, help I don't know what else to try, any suggestion would be great.

Hi everyone it looks like we are all having the same problem my daughter has been behaving badly since about a year old so we used the naughty step with some affect but now my son has become a devil child and his sister has become worse again after getting better, its constantly like a war zone in our house and time out no longer works as they want to be together even though the one on time out is there for hitting/bitting/kicking ect the other
im at a loss as to what to do with them so we tend to get out of the house as much as possible because the behaviour is worse when stuck indoors
i spoke to the peads doc at their last check up but he wasnt helpful and said being the same age they are more likely to fight, as they have the same frustrations and we would just have to wait for them to grow out of it
anyone else got twins and got through it?
we really need help
