How can I get my preschooler girls to stop with their teenage attitude?

My girls are 3 and 4 yrs old but recently when I talk to them, or ask them to do something, or not do something, they give me attitude. This is extremely annoying and disrespectful. They are good girls, but no one thinks little girls with this kind of attitude is cute. Any suggestions how to curve the "no" and "i don't care, or think so" talk?

  • I don't know. It sounds pretty frustrating though. :[ Sorry! I'd take away their privileges and let them know that you have to give respect to get it.
