  • Wow...just wow. They are freaking 2 and 1. You lost control long before the c-section.

    It's time to stop being a wimpy mom and get it together. Time-outs, taking thinks away...something.

  • Sounds like they are acting out because of the new baby. You need to find someone to help you. It would help the older ones if they had someone to take them out (away from the baby) for a while. My dd's behavior was not the best once ds came along. She was jealous and wanted attention. I try to praise her, and spend time with her without ds around. She needed to feel that she was still loved and just as important. Best of luck to you mama!!!

  • A cussing 1 and 2 year old didn't start in 2 weeks. Not to mention, if that only happened just since baby was born, spend some time with them, and don't let them feel left out.

    Do you have no one there to help at all?

  • it sounds like they're jealous. Make sure that you have some time each day for one on one with each child. And let the boys help with the baby. they can bring you diapers/toys ect. and Make sure Dad is spending time with them too. THey need to know that their behavior is inappropriate but that yuo love them too.
