    Sorry to hear about your situation. i know it's hard on the little ones. My oldest was about 2 when I divorced. Of course you want keep reminding them how much they are loved, but under no circumstance should you allow the bad behavior-I know it's hard cuz you feel guilty. Try a "naughty Mat", make a chart with star stickers, etc. to try and focus on the good behavior instead of the bad.Good luck!
