my DD just turned 4 and she is at this whatever stage you call it where she doesn't want to listen what so ever and she talks back to you and thinks she can get a way with it then when i disapline her she gets mad at me, but oh well the thing is i am about to go insane all she does is tell on her 16 month old sister for the littlest things and when i tell her to stop telling on her or if i tell her to mind her own business then she tells me to mind my own business. how can i handle this without completely going in sane?

For example...tattling (3 strikes) = loss of 5 minutes of TV time; going to bed 5 minutes earlier, etc.Â Talking back/sassing (3 strikes) =losing a favorite toy, not playing with a certain friend, not doing something she REALLY likes to do!
The more preferred the toy/activity is to her, the more impact the punishment will have!
The next step after taking away things, would be chores...making their bed, helping with dishes, laundry, throwing away DIAPERS! LOL
