You don't have to whoop them, but you do need to start disciplining them. There are several ways you can do this. You need to find something that works for you. Here are some websites that you can look at to get a feel for what you like.

I second what the others have said - you have to be the bad guy once in a while to be a parent. You are doing your children a disservice by not disciplining them. Make a list of rules for your home and consequences for breaking them - and stick to it. It will be really hard on everyone at first because no one in your house is used to it, but it will be worth the work.
