I have been split up with the father of my children for 8 years. We have not always gotten along but within the last few years we do. My boys are 9 and 11. My boys have their good and bad days but the bad days are bad days. I have done everything to make them happy. Get them involved in sports, do extra activities when I have money, spend quality time with them when we are at home like playing games, cook dinner together, ect.. but when I don't do something for them or they don't get their way. I get called names, they will not stop yelling or hitting me and sometimes will just run away. Everyone says I'm a good mother and I'm not doing anything wrong but I feel like i am. I have taken them to counselors and they are fine for them but then at school the 11 year old is having huge problems and I'm working with the school but nothing is working. I have thought about putting them in a boot camp but they say I'm a bad mother for saying I would do that. Since I the father and I split I have had a couple serious relationships but they all end because these guys can not handle the way my boys are. I just don't know what to do and I just want to crawl in a whole some days and not come out because I don't know what is best for my boys anymore.
