they are rude to my partner (there not his children) and dont listen to a word he says ..

i have tried things like not letting them have sweets taking away there toys computer games ect taking the tv out there room but nothing seems to work !!

Didn't want to read and run..but try putting their noses in the corner...I hated that when my parents did it to us. Or forcing us to hug and make-up if we bickered. Kids I find are drawn to drama...one will behave..whilst one will seek out to [*CENSORED*]-disturb the other just for the hell of it and vice-versa. My dad also use to threaten to spank both of us..just to make sure he got the guilty party...

try to lower your self down to there level and look them in the eyes and be calm with them, if they dont listen the put them in a corner for how long there age is for example a 8 year old for 8 minutes in corner and when there time is up tell them to say sorry or some will say sorry and give you a hug xx
