  • The more he talks back the more things he does not get.

  • I threaten him with Daddy... that shuts him up, not cuz Dad is mean, just very intimidating to a little guy.

  • That is disrespect and it was not tolerated at our house. I spanked for it, and there were many times when Dad spanked for it when he got home. Disrespect for Mom was a doubly spankable offence. As a single mom, you don't have the back-up, so that would definitely make it harder. But I do think it is a very serious offence still.

  • It's hard but you just have to stand firm that he is the child and you are the parent and he has to treat you with respect.
