 Family counseling/therapy is a start.

Aw gee, tough on you. And do you have a husband living with you? Time for tough love for your daughter, she's 25, a Mom, and I don't know about her high risk, but she can't have you raising her family. The fact that they are disobediant, rude and disrescpectful says they are not being disciplined AT ALL BY ANYONE. Where is their dad? I can't stress enough, you have to set down some rules if they will continue living with you, It is YOUR house, so NO back talk and bad words. Set those boundaries. Yes, family counsleing would help, check out with social services and such as they can be expensive. Or perhaps a church would have a referral. Best of luck, and stand strong. Don't allow your daughter to mooch and her kids to try and rule YOUR HOUSE AND YOUR LIFE.

at ages 5 and 3 - there's no good reason for such rotten behavior - they are still young enough to be "molded" the right way.   I don't know does Nanny 911 still exist ?

Start by implementing a schedule (keep the kids busy) & limit any screen time. Works wonders for my little ones.

Welcome to the group,
Along with counseling .. keep taking things away, ground them, give them consequences for bad behavior ..

 Yes, i agree. Don't allow this behavior in your home.
