  • No. It is probably what they need....and you too. Hugs, mamma.

  • Time to take charge of your castle, Queen, and establish some order there! Don't know how old the little fellars are, but I do know that no matter their ages, Mom should be the one who is in charge. In my house, that always involved a little bit of pain for them, not for me, except for the fact that I didn't like to have to use it. Sounds like you need to establish the fact that this is your home, and they will abide by your rules. No time like the present to get started with teaching that!

  • Put in a movie, sit them a few feet of one another and tell them if they continue to fight they have to go to bed rather than enjoying (insert favored snack or beverage) after the movie is over. Then take a deep breath and remember that when they become teenagers you will remember these moments fondly. GL

  • usually thats when i crack out something new and special. if you have paper bags from the store let them draw all over them on the kitchen floor. make masks to wear on their head. maybe something new or something thye love that they dont get to do all the time will distract them for a while

  • I would try a movie. Then if they still aredriving you nuts to bed they go. They just might need some sleep.
