Ok my 8 yrs. old son just pissed me off. I pick him up from school he has a snack I tell him to get ready for some homework to be done, He's like MOM I just got home so I say ok you can have 30 minutes to play or whatever but be ready.
Well he starts to bother my daughter and the rest of the kids. I blew up bc I had already talk to him once already. Anyway I told him to go do his homework he gets it and stomps away mumbling...aarrgg!!! Venting....Thanks!

sounds like you need to be more consistent and learn to stand your ground.
You pick him tell him its homework time, he whines you cave.
then he picks on other kids (like kids will do ) then you use homework as a punishment??? um not a good thing at all....
You need to set up the ground rules and be consistent with him. He needs to know ahead of time what is expected of him and what happens (punishment wise) if he doesn't do what he is supposed to.
give him time to run and play when he gets home then tell him its time to buckle down. have him do HM for a bit then give him a 10 min. break for every 30-45 minutes of HM he earns a 10 minute break.
