This is really bad.....but I know DD used to be really afraid of the vacuum when she was about 3, so if I ever wanted 5 minutes peace i'd just get the vacuum out and leave it going in the middle of the floor whilst I sat and had a cuppa. She'd run to her room and close the door.

My DS1 just got a DS for his birthday, so that is his new toy lol. So if I need a break Im sure to use that.
TV/movie is my break if I need some peace.
They are fine during shopping, they know if they be good then at the END of the shop they will get something special.
Chocolate eggs are a special treat when they behave. Other than that, I give them money if I need them to do something like clean up. THey get pocket money lol

I also just tell my daughter to "go away."
I tell her to leave me alone for a bit because she's driving me mental and is about to make me really angry if she keeps at it - so to go away and do something else away from me.
That's probably meaner and worse than all the "let my kids eat chocolate," stuff in here...

Sassy, my 5 year old daughter never. Stops. Talking. So I feel your pain! I too have told het to go away and give me some space. I always feel bad about it, but can't help it sometimes the constant chatter is overwhelming
