My 2.5 year old seems to think she has grown up practically over night. She talks like she thinks shes a teenager. For example: earlier I was getting her dressed and I wanted to brush her hair and she wasn't having it, so I was holding her between my knees while I brushed her hair and she was swatting at my hand saying "Knock it off mother! Don't touch my hair!" Then a few minutes ago she was talking to her little brother who is 15 months old and she said to him "Stop crying right now, you're acting like a baaabyyy, I think you need to go take a nap NOW." Then she turned to me and said "Mum, put brother (this is new too, she now calls him brother instead of his name) in the crib, he needs a nap."
This goes on all day long. My question is when a child talks like this do you laugh? I try so hard not to laugh at her but sometimes it just sounds so funny when she says it and I can't help it.

Its okay to laugh with your head turned so she does not see you laugh, because she has said some doosies...... on the appropriate side of things, you need to show her who is the boss in a gentle and teaching way, while teaching her to respect other people.
