Kind of a vent. ... but after advice on how to cope better
So I have two children, 5.5 and 4.
They are driving me crazy, from the moment they wake up to the moment they sleep (when they aren't at cc) all they do is fight...like punching each other. .. they spit in my face they throw water...push furniture around dive onto the couches from the head rest etc. Screaming...ripping everything/smashing things.
I can't seem to get them to stop
I feel like I've tried everything. ... sticker charts, time out, reward system.... even a smack on the bottom... they seem oblivious to anything I say or do.
They laugh when I discipline them timeout smack.... anything.
I feel like crying as this happens every minute (not exaggerating)
I study at uni full time and work part time ...I'm a single mom so I can't really get someone to help. ...... I just feel like I'm getting more and more stressed everyday.
Pllllleeeaaasseeee some suggestions on managing the behavior and just coping.
Just to point out my 5.5 yo has autism.adhd. so I think this may complicate it.
