Help My kids Sees me as MONSTER-MOM.

I'm a mother of 3 (13,5,2) and an Online English Teacher. My husband works abroad and I'm having difficult time with my 3 kids. My son finds my advice as not really necessary and I'm just humiliating him. He often thinks that like me he can take charge of his younger siblings. Next is my daughter. Who kept on doing things I'd already WARNED her not to do. Like tearing papers, hard to call. And often ask me to allow them to stay in my mother's house. If I forbid them I'm the MOTHER-MONSTER and Now my 2 y.o finds her elder sister act as amusing and fun. I need advice on how to discipline my kids. Most of the time I feel I'm not effective mother and often feel stress. Not my kids see me as UNLIKABLE MOTHER

Typically speaking... if your kids are doing something wrong and they don't like you because of the consequences you've laid out.... it means you are doing something RIGHT. It isn't your job to be liked. It is your job to parent.

I'm a little confused about your post and exactly what the problems are and what you are doing about them, so I'm not sure what else to add.
