If you both have different ideas about parenting, that is something you should discuss now, not later. Even though these are her children, so therefore, the parenting should mostly be up to her, you are clearly in a relatively serious relationship and therefore probably considering children of your own in the future. So you really should have this discussion together now.

thanks! the biggest issue is she has no rules for them and lets them do anything, she doesnt even have a bad time for them. Also its hard cause i grow up in a strict house with lots of rules and chorus and stuff.

Talk to your wife. Parenting isn't new to her... so follow her lead and ask her how she wants to do things (since they are her kids)... and then you guys do those things together.
