Babysitting Help

I have been babysitting for this new family in my neighborhood. Their kids are ages 3, 5, 6, 9, and 12. The 9 year old is the only one who doesn't wet the bed. For everyone else, I have to diaper them, even the 12 year old. It is very strange. Also none of them obey me. They are disrespectful and very naughty at bedtime. I was told by the parents that they were sometimes naughty and that I should spank them if they get out of control. I have spanked them before but it was no more than a light tap over their clothed bottom and it did nothing. I was told by the parents to spank harder but I don't want to get in trouble with the neighbors or anyone if the kids throw a fit. Also , I get paid really well. But i need some help, and fast.
