I have 3children altogether but my 2 boys aged 11 and 8 live with their father. My 1 year old lives with my new partner and myself. I only see my two boys every second weekend half of every school holidays and for a few hours every wednesday. The problem is i dont know how to discipline them properly when the are not around much.

When they argue they blame each other, i am unable to sort it out half the time because i do not see what happens, what am i supposed to do. I know my oldest son can get angry and violent sometimes and it is all very overwhelming.
