My kids have been misbehaving really bad lately. I have a 12 year old son and 7 year old son who have not been listening. My 12 year old thinks he can disrespect me and his father along with call us names. I have punished him by taking away video games and television but this seems to not be working. My seven year old is being disrespectful to his teacher and hitting other children. I have also had similiar consequences for his actions. I feel like my hands our tied because they continue to act out. The last straw for me was when they knocked the christmas tree over from wrestling around, so i just took it down. I told them that I was fed up and that if they did not start behaving that there would be no gifts on christmas. They know that the true meaning of christmas is jesus birth. Any suggestion or advice on how to handle their behaviours. Please do not be critical. Thank youAnswer Question

Has anything happened in their lives that would make them act out? It sounds like you're doing everything you can do right now and good for you for staying on top of things - I know it is hard! Try to talk to each of them individually and see what they're getting out of behaving this way.
Oh, and I would take away phone and computer privileges too!
Hang in there!
