My son is 5, my daughter 3. What am I doing wrong? They are screamin meanies. If they don't get what they want they throw fits. My son will even slowly throw his body on the floor and start a fake cry. My daughter just crys constantly, she'll just walk up to you screaming and you have no idea why and she won't tell me, just scream.
It's not over material things. Some examples are: going through a drive thru and not inside, not have something to drink on hand, having to sit in the car while one parent goes in the store, not allowed to have a particular food. We will go to the park for the kids and after we leave they will be hell on wheels on the way home, right after we just did something nice for them.
How do I stop all this screaming and crying going on?

If you stop letting them think they will get everything they ask for they will stop doing this. I use to tell my kids when they were young. "Don't ask for anything, because you will not get it. If I want you to have it I will give it to you". When we would go out to store I would definitely say that before we entered the store. The more they asked the less they got thing.
