How do you get your kids to listen!!!

AHH this is my vent.

I am on day 5 of clomid and getting sick tired and emotional...lol. So tried to put the kids to bed and its been 2 hours. I just had to give myself a time out. They keep going into eachothers rooms, stealing blankets, gettting back up to play, and my daughter even pulled the shelves in the bathroom off the wall!!!!!

So out of curiousity how do you get the kids to listen? THey know I am not feeling well and so pushing every boundry possible!

I crack the sh*ts. I take things away and I threaten.

Its the truth though, im not one whose up for coddling, so if theyre rubbing me the wrong way, they hear about it. Im also very blunt with my kids, I always ave been, im just generally a blunt person. Honestly, in your situation, id be standing there going "Hey, my new medication is making me really grumpy and you are all making that worse, and if you dont all cut it out you'll be in for a world of hell"

Like I said, im blunt and they hear about things.

In this case, you would have to examine yourself first and see if you put them to bed too soon or may have been unreasonable given your state. Instead of putting them to bEd, could you have sequestered them in their rooms to play for an hour or two while you got left alone then put them to bed later?

I have lined them up with noses On the wall until they could go to bed and go to sleep.

I think my best threat ever was the time I threatened to abolish ice cream from the whole world if I ever heard the five of them all yelling at each other at once again.

Because, you know... I have worldwide ice cream control.

Once upon a time I threw the tvs out.....all of them. I also cancelled Christmas one year.

Right now we are doing the "only the kid who behaves gets a treat and the rest of you can watch" thing, because apparently my lil ones think they can behave any kinda way and still get "benefits"

Well, yesterday I told them that if they couldn't behave after school that the misbahaving ones would get ramen noodles for supper and go straight to bed, the rest got pizza hut and smores. Everyone behaved pretty good lol

The bedtime thing isn't really a problem except once in a while with the girls. They don't have toys in their room at all, but sometimes they'll jump from bed to bed. Once I yell it just takes DH to go up there and give them a stern warning and they're pretty quiet.

pulling shelves off the wall would have been the end of the rope. I would have locked the bathroom, and no one would be allowed in there if they can't respect it.

Mine only listen to me when there is something in it for them. Not really but some days it seems like it. There are just days that are better then others, I also always ask is it them...or is it me? If it's them the whip cracks if it's me, I remind myself often and try to remember they are just kids.
