I am at the very end of my patience with my 5 year old daughter. Mainly I notice the issue when she is doing something that I ask her not to do, such as being mean to her younger sister, etc. I ask her to stop & she either makes this grunting noice in response or laughs, I am guilty of completely letting those responses get to me. NOTHING I say works & the laugh or grunt just get under my skin. Let me know what I should be doing in these situations? How can I keep my cool? I've done the whole, "Can you please express yourself a little differently so that I understand" and that just makes her do her grunt noice more.
What do I do?!?!

Do you have a secret stash of money somewhere and only you know where it is?
