  • Yes, my daughter is like that.. I thought I had until she was a teenager to get the sassiness I am getting now.

  • lol yes my 4 year old was like that at 3, very defiant & stubborn. now at 4 she has somewhat grown out of it but now she seems to have selective hearing. the attitude problem is much better though.

    my 2 year old is starting to get into that phase, she'll tell me no or not listen to me.

    very frustrating at times! consistency is the key.

  • My son will be Three in June and is like that. If I tell him to do something he tells me to be quiet sometimes.

  • Yes -- my 3.6 year old has gotten really sassy recently -- ALWAYS has something to say! She has been in time-out more than when in her 2's!!!
