I have twins 15 years of age....1 boy and a girl...they arenot going to school...nasty and aggressive....the boy is home stays up late playing computergames...the girl goes out day and night to see her friends....no respect..no control...My husband is disabled.We donot have any relatives.I donot think they have mental issues but they donot want to see a doctor anyway.When I cannot take them anymore I go to a hotel and stay there for a few days...They broke so many things in the house because they fight a lot...Over the last few years these problems have got worse because they are bigger..Any tips?

Hi, I feel for you. I have 15 y.o. twin boys and I know it can be hard. What has helped me the most so far is booking a session for parents, here at Reach Out, it makes it so much easier to know what steps to follow to improve.

Hey @sylvia thanks so much for posting. I am sorry to hear the twins are becoming aggressive with each other, this must be very frustrating. Sounds overwhelming for yourself and your husband.
ReachOut parents coaching is a free service we provide which may be able to offer you support moving forward with these issues. There's also ParentLine which can offer you telephone advice around their behaviour. Please continue to engage in the forums and seek peer advice as well
Have you set some boundaries with the twins? I.e. they will lose access to privileges temporarily if they continue to hurt one another? Keen to hear more.

I tried to set bounderies over the years....they get very nasty every time...it is torture...they break things too..last time it was the tv...we do Not have a tv... the way they are talking to us is terrible...they are swearing too...we are older parents and we were told we were too soft... I do Not know what to do anymore....
