Can I use "j'en ai marre" instead of "ça suffit" ?

I think in this context the dad was getting annoyed of the kids fighting each other. Therefore "j'en ai marre" can be appropriate.

Hi Winston,

The english says -

That's enough ! 

and the correct answer is 

Ça suffit !

The expression -

J'en ai marre ! is much stronger and would probably translate as :

I am fed up/ I am done/ I have had it up to here!

which conveys how the person saying it, is feeling but 

Ça suffit !

means, 

Stop that behaviour!

Hope this helps!
