Well, first, quit giving in to the 4 yo. If he throws a fit, he gets time out, or whatever your disciplinary preference is, but DO NOT GIVE IN.

Of course he throws fits right now, because it sounds as if you give in to get him to cooperate. If you say NO, then he needs to accept it. Kicking, hitting, biting, all need to be shut down immediately, each and every single time he starts. If you decide no television, then, he doesn't get to whine, cry, hit, kick, bite until he gets his way, he may sit in a corner, and when he's ready to behave correctly, he may rejoin whatever is going on, but do NOT turn on that TV to get him to behave.

The 2 yo, same deal. Constant and consistent correction and redirection.

The preteens need to learn some respect as well. They are not the parents of the little ones, therefore they have no place in discipline, yelling at the kids only helps the 4 yo think that its ok to do so! CONSEQUENCES!!! Preteens yell at 4yo, they lose electronic privileges for a set amount of time, which needs to be increased each time they do it.

My 4 year old has behaviors he interrupts me and tells me I'm not listening, while I'm on the phone or just having a conversation with his dad. He hits, kicks says he hates me, but from the time he wakes till he goes to bed he says I love you mommy, unless he don't like the answer I give. Every 20 min I have to turn on power rangers we have on demand if I say its your brothers turn to pick or I decide regular cable he screams, throws a tantrum, but again if he gets his way, all day I here I love you mommy, don't get me wrong I love those words but 100 x a day. Then there is my two year old very clingy to me always wants up, very mean to cats hits, kicks, pokes we live with a fam of 4 her two preteens no better constantly hells at my two boys neglect's them how can I make things better this is the basic but there is alot of things on my mind this is a good start
