I agree with Jaime. I have an 8 yr old and 5 yr old boy. My oldest listens and does what I tell him very well but my youngest wants to argue and get his own way. Set the rules why dad is gone and stick to them . If you have to take away privileges. Game systems,computers, cartoons,etc. Whatever it is that you know they like the most. tough love where you know it will bother them the most. they still know at the end of the day that you love them even if they think you are mean for awhile. Hurts but we gotta do it:)

Im assuming they are older, and I am assuming like most moms your a push over (not a bad thing) but you need to become tough mom. Even though you are married right now you need to take on the role of a single parent and play mom and dad until you guys move back. Set rules and stick to your guns, if you dont they will walk all over you.
