Am totally p*ssed off with my lot (kids aged 10 & 12).

Always fighting and squabbling... they started as soon as they come in from school and stops when they go to bed.

So so fed up with them

We have a shed too, but knowing my luck if I went in there they would bl**dy follow me lol

Come to a head yesterday they were fighting on the landing and the eldest picked up the other one by his neck and pushed him down the stairs, luckily he was on his belly and his feet hit the wall at the bend of the stairs. She wasn't even sorry or show any remorse either...

Thanks Teresa...

Hubby and I havn't fell out, we are still talking at the end of the day they belong to him too.

They were ok this morning mind you they were only in the same room for 5 mins before the eldest went out for her school bus and the youngest was busy feeding his face with cereal.

Just dreading 3.30 coming round

maybe you could write them a list of chores each to do when they get home......and they dont get any treats or fight time till they're done,failier to complete the tasks results in playstation or whatever being confiscated-for a month...i did this with my son and his football-you would have thought i had chopped his legs off the fuss-but it worked!,i dunno,just an idea

Thanks for all the advice, but been there done that and they still fight and argue...



I never done things like that cause I knew my dad would batter me stupid he only had to shout and I would cry.... mind you my sisters were 9 and 14 years older than me, but I grew up with my neice who is 3 yrs younger and she was evil at times lol
