All kids take time to re-adjust. I know its not an answer but they do. I think you need to set boundaries and stick to them. This will let them know what is expected of them. They may act that way at their dads but if its not accpetable with you they need to know this.

im a step mum, so i understand it must be hard. i would speak to your ex, if you cant, email him. tell him your concerns and that you'd like to work together as parents. i must say my ss's mum always says their naughty when they return home (and other things). but we never do anything different. are routine i would say is normal ie meal times are the same and bed times.

maybe your children do it for a reason?? its hard to know. maybe your ex does not have a routine. one thing you do need to do is talk.

hope this helps

i know its hard but try and set down the rules, if you have done it then i dont know what else to do sorry,

try explaing to them that some things that they do at dads house will not be accepted in your house,
