I am so f***ing sick of this!

My children destroy everything I own! They treat my living room and the furniture like the goddamn playground, every day something new is broken, they have no respect for other people's property!!! One is only 2 duo that's understandable but my other son is almost 6 and I'm so sick of things being broken. Like yesterday it was the mirror in the hall, it's fucking almost 5ft off the ground and STILL it got knocked down. I'm constantly telling them to sit down and cut it out and there's a time and a place for everything etc but they ignore me. My ods will literally step on stuff if it's on the floor, not giving a flying fuck if he breaks it. It makes me so mad sometimes I wish I hadn't had kids so I can have a few nice fking things! We don't have a lot of money and I try really hard to have a nice house on a budget so nobody is embarrassed... I'm at a loss really..

I wish I could tell you it gets better, but it doesn't. I have a 7,10, & 16 year olds. I miss having nice things.

I know what can help! A schedule! I run a licensed daycare out of my home. A schedule is a must to keep sanity! Mine and the kids! They know what to expect every day. I also have specific spaces for certain play and we only eat food (and drink)  at the table. They need reminders constantly. I ask them what the rules are. They also take part in helping me come up with the rules and consequences when they dont follow the rules.

Ground him/put him in time out every time don't let him get by for the littlest things. That doesn't work maybe try braking one of his toys in front of him and throw it away and explain that if he brakes your stuff you'll brake his and you will not buy any more till he changes. Just saying right now I have a 3 year old who thinks she's a teenager lol I'm constantly getting eyerolls and she is really good at ignoring me so she sits in time out a few times a day but I explain every time to her why she's got to sit there. Good luck

Harsher punishment? Ds3 went through a phrase of breaking toys and ripping books on purpose so I confiscated his favourite toys and made his throw out the broken ones himself.

Quoting okeydokie: I wish I could tell you it gets better, but it doesn't. I have a 7,10, & 16 year olds. I miss having nice things.

If he breaks something put him in a timeout and if that doesn't work start making him give his toys away to kids who don't have toys.

He will rethink his behavior if he has nothing.

I'm really not trying to sound bitchy or condescending but have you tried disciplining them? I only ask because your op said nothing about how they get punished for acting out. Personally, for every thing they break I would take away something they love like a favorite toy. Or put them in time out for a set amount of time every time you ask them to settle down and they ignore you. Sorry you're frustrated, mama!
