Ok so maybe I let them do whatever or I need to step up and be the mother. But I will say I don't think I have control over my kids. The girls are fine, I really don't have problems with them. But the boys don't listen to me, do whatever, and sometimes I want to choke them. Am I to easy with my kids? I'm sorry and I sound like a bad mother but really I don't how to get my kids. And I really can't be harsh or anything.

How can treating you with lack of respect be crazy and confusing (that's confusing with one 's')? They are either displaying specific behaviours of disrespect, or they aren't. I'm not sure how anyone can help you if it is so vague......Perhaps, if it is that vague, they don't realise their behaviour is disrespectful and all you need to do is point it out to them. I mean, if it is so vague you can't explain it, then that might be all it is.

Well it is hard to explain a little. But I feel like I never put my foot down. I never want to say I kind of let my kids do whatever but it does seem to go that way. And I'm scared that's the reason why my boy's have no respect for me. Its confussing and crazy I know but I want my kids to respect me like I would to them.

Well, what are they doing and how are you currently dealing with it? Can't really offer suggestions without more information.
