Make your children to stay with their grandparents as much as possible. Try not react in front of them on any situation good/bad. Inculcate the lessons of respect, patience, forgiveness and being forgetful. Let them take decisions and make mistakes. And yes, do not fulfill their demands in one go. These things will indeed take time but you will see good results in coming times of his/her life.
