My twin boys are 9.5 months old. The youngest has had a lot of stomach problems while the first born child has had no problems. My problem is that Nathan, my first born is very impatient and very verbally loud when somthing is not right for him. He has shown signs of wanting to take a bite out of us more than one time.
I understand they do not know the meaning of the word "no" until around 18 months, so how does one live with a rebel until 18 months?
As a parent of two very young child (which are our first children) how do I teach them patients?

You just teach patience by demonstrating it and rewarding it. Same as anything else.

But yeah, patience is too complex a concept for kids to understand before 18 months or so. It's natural for a nine month old to have so little emotional control.

It's also natural for one twin to be really loud and one to be quiet.
