Have a family meeting with your children and husband. Let your children know how it makes you feel when they scream and cry for no reason. Give them consequences for their actions and follow through. If your children can not sit politely during dinner time I would send them to their room for the night. Let them know that it is not okay to scream in the house, if they don't listen send them to their room until they can apologize and behave. Let them know if they eat their dinner they may have a treat, if they behave maybe you will take them to the park the next day.
