we are together and I try to do stuff they either rip it to shreds, go do something else, I.E. a minute later, or make HUGE gigantic messes. I've tried sitting them down and talking to 'em. Time out for when they make HUGE messes or do something they know not to. Our apartment isn't that big. Things seem to get out of hand a lot. I tend to put the kids in the hall or their room when I need to do something, I.E. cook or clean. As having them help seems to be more detrimental then helpful. I've given small, clear concise direction to each of 'em but they don't seem to get it. Mostly they like to make messes or fight (DH loves physical fighting [doesn't do anything that isn't above the kids' level]). Any help or advice is greatly appreciated. If you would like more info feel free to pm me.Answer Question
