How do you get the children to respect you?
Well, if this is your only concern, then you're in for a LONG haul. They're toddlers..you can't demand respect from a toddler.
Be kind, be playful, respect THEM and the fact that THEIR father was THEIRS first.
I don't know your entire situation and I am last to judge anyone if I can help it. I try to remain as objective as possible..but in all reality, he just had a third child, I am assuming out of wedlock, with a completely different woman..only six months ago..and as long as that may SEEM, it is no time at all when you have a child...let alone three.
Look at the example he is setting for his children...if HE respected you, or their mother respected you...they would...
But these things take time...and dedication ..and patience.
Wait, and just...TRY.
