Home More advice Kids

i babysit a 4 year old girl and a 2 year old boy, and I'm always really nice and kind of a pushover (like, ill let them sleep a little past their bed time). but when I tell them to do something (like brush their teeth or eat their dinner or something) they'll laugh and not do it... idk, they just don't listen! i guess, how do i be the "fun babysitter" but also have their respect?
