We all read alot, but we also have a daily read aloud hour right before dinner (we read, then do the final dinner prep and set the table together). It's my favorite hour of the day. This helps keep the pre-dinner madness in check.
When the going gets rough, get outside or flop down and read aloud or run a bath for them and make yourself some tea to drink tubside or take out some crayons and start to draw something yourself or wait 10 minutes and see what they come up with to do. Those crazy moments end, even when you think they won't!
