You have to be consistent in your expectations and consequences.
They don't call it the terrible two's for nothing, and they usually last until about 4! This is the age that children are getting more adventurous and start to push the boundaries. They also get frustrated because they can't communicate as well as they want and sometimes we don't understand what they want.
I know it's hard, I was there as well. My boys were 1 and 3.5 when I left their Father and it was tough. I got through it and now have 2 very respectful young men. They are now 15 and 12.5 and listen to what I say and know what I won't tolerate.

Hi Rebecca
I can tell from you post how much you love your little ones. I understand. I hate it when I get angry too! Children are such a gift from God and so wonderful, and you love them so much and yet you can't believe how frustrated you get with them. I feel this way sometimes too! I pray SO MUCH about this. I spend time in prayer every morning asking The Lord to give me patience, strength and a gentle spirit. Can I recommend a book I really loved? Its called "Grace based parenting" by Tim Kimell. It helped me so much! I just prayed for you right now. I pray that the Lord will meet all your needs and help you be the sweet mama you are! God bless you and your boys!
Love, M
