I have 2 boys who are 5 1/2 and 4. There are times they can be the most well mannered boys. Mainly in public or when their grandpa is around. At home, they are little monsters. The main problem I have is they are always making one mess after another. My oldest son us the ring leader and my youngest just follows. I spank, take their toys away, ground them from tv, make them stay inside to clean up a mess before they can go out and play, etc. They continue to do it. There are days where they will literally stay inside all day, receive multiple extra punishments, and still refuse to clean up.
I don't enjoy being a mother anymore due to this. I don't look forward to the weekends anymore cause it means I have 2 whole days with my boys.
