Twin toddler fighting

Patient

Q: Hi I was wondering if I could get any advice for discipling my Twin toddlers. They are 18 months old and they fight over EVERYTHING. If one gets a toy the other wants it even though there are other toys next to them just because her sister has it, or when Im sitting on the couch they both fight to sit on my lap and will not share mommy's lap and instead just shove each other off. Im constantly having to break up screaming fits and fights (pushing, hitting, tugg of war, etc). My kids dont do well with time out, and I really need a technique that works for twin because some methods dont work that normally work with single child parents
