OK i have some ideas you could try...model the behavior you want. Keep the crap foods and additives out of their diet. Create a positive, calm home environment. Limit violent video games and TV that is not age appropriate. Find what they value most and reward their helpfulness with more of it. Monitor their friends and cut contact with children who are rude and uncaring.

Seems some tough parenting is in order. Never have my children used cuss words. Why number 1 they never heard them but number 2 because they knew there would be consequences for ill behavior. Time out for such behavior and loss of privileges. You have to be tougher than they are period. Do not allow such behavior under any circumstances and be consistent with whatever punishment you go with. They get NOTHING unless they use please and thank you etc. you are going to need to reevaluate your parenting style and decide what is or is not working and change it.
