  • Take everything out of their rooms. I have 4 kids 6 1/2 and under. I send them to their room when they do things they know they shouldn't.

  • Duct tape.  Copious amounts of duct tape.

    I'm kidding but sometimes I wish I could, especially with my 10yo (she has behavior issues and tries my patience).  I have 4 (ages 4, 7, 8 and 10) and they have been driving me nuts lately.  They used to behave for the most part but then my husband moved away (long story) and now they are out of control and I'm too exhausted to deal with them (pregnant but also dealing with depression and some kind of long term fatigue that is threatening to destroy my life).
