Stop telling kids how awful their other parent is.

Younger children identify themselves with their parents, they don't fully extend themselves as individuals until later years. So when you tell them how awful their father/mother is, regardless of circumstance, then you're actually attacking who they are as people and undercutting their self worth. So stop it, I don't care how messy your divorce is, or how big of a drug addict their other parent is. Safe that information for when they're able to handle it.
