How about 1 last warning before kicking them to the curb?! You are doing their mother a favor. That does not include putting up w/ ungrateful, ill-mannered brats. If they have toys, outside activities like chalk, bubbles, jump-ropes & a ball, that should be good. Maybe go to a local park to let them play on the playground & pack a picnic lunch. But I would not reward their bad behavior. If they haven't earned special activities, let them know why. GL

It's a learned behavior to appreciate what others do for you. I would make them do things for other people if they start arguing or complaining. If worse comes to worse, they just stop coming to your house. The best thing that could happen is that they learn a little from you that they might not be getting at home.
The other thing I have found helpful is trying to find an even number of kids to play. Odd numbers usually mean that someone gets left out and that causes complaining and fighting. Even numbers increase the likelihood that they will break into groups and play separately but peacefully.
