I have a 7 yr old & almost 6yr old., and for some reason they think that they don't have to listen to what I ask them to do, from picking up there clothes & toys to going helping them selves to what ever they want to snack on, the 7 yr old has screaming matches with me, and the other one just cries, I know I'm doing something wrong here....
Thanks for any help

do you have house rules already? if you do start implimenting them more with consquences if the rules are broken...
If you don't maybe it's time for a family meeting and set some and if your 7 yr old needs to scream send her to her room to do it and let her know she isn't getting anywhere with that type of outburst... also start taking favorite things away... including play dates... or special activities for a more serious thing...
For each rule set up set up a consquence for breaking it and stick to it... in time it may not be needed any longer...

my almost 7 yr old sometimes gets in a mood when she doesnt want to listin. mostly not though. but when she does, she goes to her room and doesnt get anything special or anything she wants.no dessert, no t.v. no going fun places. she also gets more chores to do. and i will take away her special toys if she talks back. but like i said she doesnt do it often because she knows. my step daughter (5) on the other hand, knows how to drive me nuts. and i do the same with her too. but i also reward them whem they are being really good and i tell them thank you for doing chores and i hug and kiss them. and we do something fun when chores are done. like painting finger and toe nails, watching a movie while cookies are backing, coloring together. they know that if they do what they are told ill be happy and so will they
