i have 3 children ages 2,3 and 4 and i am 3 months pregnant with my fourth. the problem i have is with disciplining my eldest 2. They are cheeky, fight constantly, and their back chat is already becoming unbearable. i have tried shouting, talking, and even the odd smacked bum but nothing seems to work. what makes it worse is they laugh in my face and on numerous occasions they have driven me to tears and STILL laughed at me!! I feel like i have lost all control over them and feel like i spend my whole day telling them off instead of enjoying being with them. HELP!!!

O my goodness I am so sorry to hear that. I am dealing with the back chatter with my oldest. Which is very annoying but, that's all that really becomes an annoyance. I find if I give activities and a movie of their choice things calm down. If I don't all hell breaks lose.
