I have five children, ages 13, 12, 10, 9 and 2. Most of them have a habit now of talking OVER me which is now becoming quite hurtful. I am beginning to feel as though I am an invisible Mom. I am also tiring over hearing statements such as "STOP talking over your Mother" by my husband. I know he is being defensive for my sake but it hasn't eliminated the problem. No matter what it may be...an argument, a suggestion, or any type of converstation...the kids have found themselves in a horrible habit of talking over me and interupting what I am trying to share with them. Please, are there any Moms out there that have gone through this and what techniques have been made to correct this behavior?

When they do this the next time, say "excuse me for talking while you were interrupting" . They have to stop and think about that one.
