Hi there, I am a single mom of 7 and 5 yr old girls. I would like some advice on what to do when things get loud and crazy , how to calm things down. Also they have a real problem listening to me, any advice without me having to scream my head off at them?
Also how do you keep your kids occupied ?

Sorry I can't offer advice, but I can definitely relate to your experiences. You are not alone! If anyone has any advice I would like to hear it too.

To get a childs attention is a trying experience. (Just like disiplines, every kid is unique). Honestly, counting to 3 really works for mine. I swear they ignore me until I count!
If you kids are in school, I bet the teacher has some tricks in her bag!!! Ask during your next parent interview.
To get them occupied I suggest crafts. It improves creativity and imagination. My kids also like my old TV shows from the 80's. Brady Bunch, Lavergne & Shirly, Happy Days. For 5&7;, try Punky Brewster. Today's Special and Zoobilily Zoo. All shows have great morals and values and the latter shows are educational hits.
Try bringing the kids to the park for 40mins. It will release some energy.
