He continuously talks, tries to run around, gets loud, and I spend all of my energy at Mass just trying to get him to calm down and be quiet. It's VERY frustrating and I can't pay any attention during Mass at all on Sunday. The only time that I can actually get something out of Mass is if I go to daily Mass by myself during the week. My question is this, is it ok if I go to Sunday Mass alone while my wife watches the kids, and then she go alone while I watch the kids? I kinda would feel bad about that though cause I feel like they are Catholics too, even though they are young, so they should be at Mass. Any insight would be greatly appreciated.

Are there any Byzantine Catholic churches nearby?  There is so much going on during the liturgy, kids are usually distracted enough by what's going on that they don't act up too often.

Are you serious? The duty of the parent is to train the child, and yes, it  might take a few swats on the bottom for the little tike to get the message. I'm sure if the/she doesn't listen to you at Mass you are not listened to anywhere else! Remember, you are in charge and not the little terrorist...
