How do you get your 5 year old and 10 year old to stop the attitudes and the hitting an stuff?

I have a 5 year old and a 10 year old. The 5 year old when he doesn't get his way he throws a fit and stomps, kicks, hits and screams. I have tried everything putting in time out(chairs, steps, corners) and even taking things away(such as DS,TV, toys) and nothing works. My 10 year old has an attitude all the time you can ask him to do something and he has an attitude. Also my 10 year loves to pick on the little things that his brother is doing wrong or he thinks he is the parent and thinks he gets to punish his brother. Help me please I am running out of ideas..................

Don't lose it yet let me jump on the wagon with you I have 2 boys 10 and 6 and all they do is fight, tattle, complain. I swear they fight 10 hours of the day and maybe get along 30 minutes and now that school is out they are driving me insane not a minute of peace in my house even when they are outside they argue. I have tried eveything also so I'm anxious to see what has worked for other parents. I don't want to just give up then they win and it's our job to try to be the best parents we can be. My 10 year old tells me he hates me when he gets mad I always remind him that I am his mother before I am his friend! He gets over it eventually but if I ever said that stuff to my mom she would have probaly slapped me back to reality!!
