Hello to all the parents out there, I am a mom of two boys, a 10 yr old and a 7 yr old, Both are my life and I thank the good lord for them every day and night. I am married have been for 17 yrs, that is a work in progress. My dh has never wanted to be the bad guy so it was and is always me to correct the children, My daily life is, I wake up then the kids wake and my older son will go right to the video games my younger son watches tv while I cook , They eat then the fighting begins, My older son always calls my younger son names and yells at him and then it starts, They don't listen to me they don't follow directions, it seems where ever we go they argue, in the van in the store ect, My fil has told my dh and I that we should put them in boarding school because they don't listen and asked if my younger son has ever been tested for ADD ADHD ( which he has but he does not have either) He is just a active boy like his dad, I have tried taking things away, video games for my oldest and for my younger son and I have taken T. V time away but they don't get it, they still fight argue all the time, my stress level is high, I signed them both up for karate camp, same camp same class, thinking they need to spend more time with each other as a team, and will soon see that if they do things as a team then they can do anything together, I don't know what else to do ? I don't spank never have, I read books, 1 2 3 magic , that went out the window. the strong will child, that one too, and boys will be boys, Nothing helps. What can I do to correct them? Btw, they have a potty mouth like you have never heard. ( thanks to dh that is another reason why our marriage is a work in progress) and the kids will tell who ever ask them, why do you say that word? they say my dad says it all the time ! OMG I could just dig a hole and hide. I have tried to sink it in dh head that he has to leave his mouth at work at home he has to put on his father hat. I don't know, I don't know to do a schedule , tokens I have tried that to earn video and T.v time special treats, earn more points have a day out with mommy or daddy. I am at the end of my rope. so Now what !

BUT.... I feel like my visits are not what they use to be. He...
I gave my 2 week notice last Friday 13th. Now to join you fine people in a life of leisure and nothing else to do but to look out for myself....is it just me or does that sound pretty boring?

I just can't stay in that building that is reeking mildew...
