Do have a routine for your children because sometimes when they don't know where they stand or what is about to happen then they can become uncontrolable. I would suggest that you put into place a routine and even draw it up and keep it on the fridge but use pictures so if they cant read then they can see what is going to be happening. Next I would stick to one thing and keep reinforcing this because if you are using different techniques then it could become confusing. I know its hard but try and not to raise your voice all the time because they can become immune to your voice and it can make the situation worse instead try to keep calm and use the 1, 2, 3 technique. If you get to 3 then follow through with whatever discipline you have chosen. It may take time and whenever I am going through a phase with my little ones I always try to remind myself that everything is for a season. Hope this helps a little:)
