Oh how I have been there and now my oldest is going to be 13 yrs soon and the other is 10 yrs.
I learned to do the eye level thing quickly.
First, I had a very short 'speech' where I'd say what will happen if they didn't behave.
Second, when the behavior continued a privilege was taken away. Third, when said privilege was taken away a tantrum was certain to follow which included more arguing from the child(ren) and so I'd pretend to turn off my ears and not acknowledge the back talk.
And heck yeah, that trying to keep my voice down is hard but it's important to try.
For my own kids spanking doesn't help.
Eventually that kind of stuff has become less an issue. But now mine are tweens and it started again. So I have returned to my former tactics and it's working!
Hang in there!
