Do you ever send your kids away?

My kids are driving me nuts... so I just sent them to the basement (their toy/playroom). I told them they needed to go play, and get along. I said, no one was allowed to come upstairs for any reason other than to go potty for at least half an hour... and I was setting the oven timer.

Do you ever send your kids away to another part of the house?

Also, on more than one occasion I have called a friend or family member and asked them to come take the kids off my hands for a little while... because I can't take it anymore.

Do you ever "pawn" your kids on someone else, just for a breather?

I try to send my 4 year old away but she never goes.  My 13 year old barely comes to the same part of the apartment I'm in unless he needs to use the bathroom.

We have a sun porch and i'll send them out there to play, or their rooms ... but it doesn't last long.

I don't have anyone to ever take them off my hands ... so nope!

 Yea I do. Some days I send them to their rooms for 30 min and say it is rest time or Mommy is going to lose it. And if it is really bad, I say those rooms are the safest place for you right now so get.  I cannot go in a room because they still get into things.  I am making lunch yesterday and they were downstairs with dh, one room over.  They decided to melt crayons on top of the pellet stove that was on. And dh did not think them being quiet was enough to check on them.  Or they color on the walls still. Climb on th counters and sneak candy, cut the screens, etc.  Some days I wonder why I am not totally gray.
