Preschoolers & Kindergartners What a fun time in life! Time to learn 123's and ABC's. At the same time, they're leaving that babyhood we'll miss so much!

Oh if I could only go back where you are.:p My dd is now 11.
I could give you a laundry list of things that I should have did but instead I will tell you that SOAP in the mouth WORKS for bad words. We save up "hotel" soaps. Perfect fit.
When you are firm and draw your line in the sand they will know.
Also being with baby is very stressful and they need time spent alone with you and dad."Special time" works.

I would say focus more on the positive and ignore the bad behavior to a degree. You have to create the positive environment first before you expect a kid to come around sometimes.
Also dad not coming home because of the situation will create tension in the house. I am sure you want him there and when he doesn't come home kids pick up on this.
A good thing that REALLY helps is to "quiet" your house down. NO tv, radio, going all the time. This even helps me today. I have a 11 & 6yo dds.

BUT the thing that made the BIGGEST impact was me and my dh are on the same page. They know they cannot break the parent barrier we have and man that is what has made the difference...FINALLY
You'll get there, I promise.
