My daughter is turning 5 in a couple of months and until recently I have never believed in "phases." She has been acting out and deliberately doing things when I tell her not to. I was thinking that it was because of my new baby girl but the mothers that I have been talking to lately say that around the age of 5 children (girls) go through a defiant independent phase. SOOOO.. how many mom's think that is could be true? Is this phase something that really happens?Answer Question

That being said just because it is normal doesn't excuse the behaviours.
