It seems like as long as I can remeber anymore my boys have been destructive and disrespectful to me, I dont know what to do anymore. They also NEVER get along it seems like. They get physical with one another and I just can't take it any longer. I realize boys fight but this is not how I imagined my son's growing up together. I am at a breaking point and just need some advice. I spoke with my husband who says that they are just normal kids. Today for instance my youngest son ripped all the papers I had on our bar and threw them all over the living room and then they both got into the vaseline and had it all over there hands, all over the bathroom etc. After cleaning them up I sent them out to clean up the living room because thats where all the papers where, they did do it but then after they did they started to fight and when I try to correct them its like I get one calmed down and then the other starts and so forth.

You need to set some boundaries, right away. The destructive behavior should result in loss of privileges, such as television or video game time. Same for disrespect. You're the mother, you're in charge so be in charge.
