my boys ages 7 and 5 have gotten to be out of control and im out of ideas. they break stuff, fight, get into the snacks( i have those in the back room with a hook lock atop the door i have to use a chair to reach it) cause they fill up on snacks they done eat meals (snack foods in my house consist of whole grain crackers& breads fruit snacks granola..somewhat healthy stuff) its to the point that where ever i go i have to take them with me ie..cleaning the bathrooms cleaning kitchen changing my 2yr old diaper and with me to the bathroom, i cant leave them alone for even 5 min without them destroying stuff. on nice days we go outside and play, like today went and made a snow fort as a family, or we try to do other family stuff but on the days my hubby works i cant even get them to settle down. they cant sit still they cant follow directions. im so frustrated

Answered at 7:45 PM on Jan. 10, 2010 by: Gailll Learn new parenting skills besides punishment. Punishment does not teach good behavior. Go to the bookstore and look at parenting books to get new ideas. Take parenting classes. Go to a parenting conference. Do research online.
Yet another ignorant response from the peanut gallery...
