How do I keep stitches from twisting?

Okay Im graduated from Scarves to afghans..or am trying, and I have a question:

Im making a baby afghan and I am just knitting every row. Its 7 rows with a size 13 needle, 7 rows with a size 3 needlesuppose to look pretty neat!

When I made scarves I knit one row, purled one rowI knit continental, and to purl, I taught myself to knit backwardsAmerican/English is it called were you throw the yarn? So I dont really know how to purl, but it doesnt matter.anyway

When I am knitting I notice that I put the needle in I put it in the front (leading edge?)but then the next row, when I put it in the front it causes it to twist, so the leading edge is in the backwhy? In order not to make it twist I have to put the needle in the back. Does any of that make sense? Im really trying not to twist my yarnnot that it will matter, but I am trying.
