my daughter and son are 22 months apart. both are diagnosed with adhd. my son has odd, sensory integration and serious anger issues. my daughter deals with anxiety and memories of our past. their biological father, who has regular visitations, beat me up in front of them. he drug me up the hallway by my hair and choked me while banging my head against the wall with our then 2 year old daughter in his other hand. the kids are now 5 and 7. they fight, hit each other with anything that can possibly be a weapon, break things, head butt, kick, scream and it doesn't matter what is in their way, including our new 4 month old baby. there is a constant fight going on, constant screaming, and i guess i just need more ideas on how to keep my cool. they respond better to calm talking and time outs away from each other, but from dawn till dusk, there is rarely peace in our house, and there is only so much i can take a day. someone give me pointers??
