Sounds like your daughter is, for whatever reason, underpressure and irritable with the kids, and not developing a coherent system of disclipline. Kids who lack this structure often misbehave, partly because they don't recognize whatever they're doing as misbehaviour ( adult protests can be seen as just irritability rather than arising from any cogerent code of conduct ) ; partly because there is no cogerent system of predictable condequences for misbehaving. And with squabbling parents, maybe it's only when they're making a mess that they feel they get any attention at all.
