It seemed like not so long ago my kids were all sweet and innocent and never did anything wrong, but boy has that changed. Almost over night in fact. It happened just a few weeks ago when they turned 12 and 13. My dh and I are high school sweethearts and yes we started out young having kids, I was 15 and he was 16. We have always tried to do the best we can, but now the kids are getting out of control and I am feeling depressed about it. They don't listen to anything anymore, they seem to do what they want. Bad Attitudes prevail, and I am losing my energy with it. They are not sweet anymore.Any one have any advice? Our kids are running the house, instead of us! What to do to make it better, so we can restore the peace?

Stand your ground and be consistent. When they act up there needs to be consequences. Not all teens behave this way. Your kids know there are not consequences so they behave anyway they want. You need to get back the control you gave to your children and do it quickly. Do you really want to be a grandma in a couple years?
