Depends on what behavior you're trying to get stopped, etc.

I'm sorry for your loss.

I don't have experience being a single parent, however I have 3 sons (and a daughter) and the only way to keep them from going crazy is to keep them busy.  They need physical activity and lots of it.  I suggest getting them into martial arts or tumbling because both help release energy and with boys you will need a way to get that energy out.  If they aren't dealing with pent up energy they will be able to listen to you a lot better.  I have noticed with my kids that if they get regular exercise it really helps in the discipline department.  Also, having defined rules in your household helps.  If the kids have specific expectations then they are easier to manage.  Are you having any specific issues?
