3) Help with Praise kids?

We need some suggestions  now.
We Ken and myself teach Wed. night Praise kids.
Problem 1. we don't have enough help, it's just the 2 of us.
2. Very inner city.
3. The kids are lumped in one group ranging in age 4 to 13.
(This as you all know does not work.)
We have split them up, but when I take the 6 and under, Ken alone is left
with the 7 and up.
These kids are out of control and he cannot get them to listen to him at
all.  (The parents are of no help, most of them do not come to church and
drop the kids off so they can go and drink and party.)
We are looking for help to take the younger ones so I can help him with
the unruly 7 and up.  Even a few of the young ones are troublesome but I
have found ways to get them to behave without them  even knowing it. 
Enlisting their help and making them feel important)
This doesn't work long with the older ones.
Question is does anyone have any suggestions as to how to get and keep
their attention?
We do a craft, and have a lesson and try to play a few games.
But by the time we get them under control to do any of this we have wasted
most of the night.
Anyone who has been there and done this, feel free to give me suggestions.
Ken is very disheartened and I am trying to encourage him.  I know with
God and this network we will be able to get it to where it works and we
can teach them about the Lord and not by the methods they get at home,
yelling and bitterness.
Please let me know of any good, God, ideas you may have.  I was to the
point that I was going to quit, but I couldn't stick it to Ken that way
and I really would like to help these kids as much as I can.  Through the
Lord their lives can change, but we could use some really good ideas.
Thank You,
In Christ,
Akron Bible Church
