Bad behavior and nothing seems to work
I have a 10,7, and 4 year old girls. They do see their father but he does not discipline at all. I am the one who has to do it all. My 7 year old got out chalk and wrote all over the refrigerator. My 4 year old wrote on the wall with a marker. I put them in time out or give them a spanking but it doesn't seem to do any good. They laugh or just look at me when I do. It does not do any good. I can't take a break from them and leave them alone because I don't know what they will do. They are really good kids but they just don't listen and don't learn from punishments like grounding or anything. I don't know what to do anymore.
