  • Kids learn by example. They either hear it or see it and say/do it. Does he watch tv? Maybe he learned it there.

  • Lately any time I tell my 3 year to do something (pick up a toy, bring something to me) she tells me
    "You do it, I am busy" then goes back to playing.

  • I think he is just testing his bounds to see how far he can push you. Instead of asking him to do something, tell him.

  • Yup, my DS has done this along with the "OkAAy" tone that ElsaSalsaaa wrote. What stinks is that my 3-year old DD has picked this up and does it, too! She has also done that "you do it" bit! Do you think they are conspiring? LOL :D

  • Well it is funny unless you actually need him to do something. He is showing you he has free will. Oy good luck.
