It sounds like when you apply an effect, you still have both layers selected... so AE applies the effect to both layers.

You know you will find your answers here? Great!
You would also find your answers in the help files.

For Shatter, you split your layer at the time you want it to start and apply it to the second layer. OR you can keyframe the location of the force so that it doesn't hit the pieces until you want it to.
RTFriendlyM The help pages have tons of useful information and links to tutorials and such. Much faster than typing out a question and waiting for somebody to respond. Here's the page on Shatter [link].
I highly suggest you read it as it will provide you with a lot of useful stuff to make your effect look better.
