My 4 year old likes to be funny. He always has a response for everything!! He repeats everything he hears and he doesn't seem to know the diference between and adult and his peers. It used to be cute when he was 1 and 2 yo, but now it's just annoying and embarassing. Just this morning, I picked him up from pre-school and he said "see you later, suckers! to his friend and his friends mother!! I told him that was not nice and told him that was disrespectful and made him appologize.How do I teach him to respect his elders? It's like he has to have the last word or something. Please help me before I'm on the next episode of "Snapped" LOL!!
Wow, that is really something for a 4 year old to be saying. My question is: Why are you allowing people to speak that way around him? If you aren't, then where could he be picking it up? I would deffintly let him know that it is unacceptable to speak like that. I would be even more concerned that he is speaking that way to his friends more so than other adults. What is he teaching his little pals. I'm sure that there parents wouldn't like them hanging around him and teaching there kids wrong doings. I wish you luck. 4 is a really hard age. My gets a bit out of hand sometimes as well, and I am hoping that five is much smoother. Come on June. LOL!
