  • I'm on the same boat mama. I've said it as well. Kids always annoy us in someway. My daughter does the same thing and doesn't even listen at all, I've tried everything and she still does it over and over again.

  • He needs you to set some boundaries of acceptable behavior and then he needs you to enforce them. Children should never be allowed to be in charge of their parents nor their homes. If you don't get a handle on it right now, your life is going to be miserable for the next 15 years or so. He will not just outgrow this kind of behavior. You will have to teach him what is and is not acceptable in your home. You can be prepared for him to resist because he is already in the habit of ruling your roost. So dig in your heels and make disobeying the rules in your home to have painful consequences.

  • My 3 year old drives me crazy too. She is constantly talking back or telling me no or giving me attitude.

  • You are not alone! My son goes from 1 thing to the next. He makes sure that I am on my "job" everyday! I love to watch him sleep.

  • My daughter is 3 1/2 and still tells me no & gets into things too. We are just trying to set boundaries for her and teach her that it is not acceptable. She has major attitude sometimes.
