Ive felt like a pretty good parent up until recently.. It seems the more verbal my child get the more testy she gets. The more I find myself going "what should I do to that?"
- If I call her inside for going near the fence (dog on other side) she takes her slowpoke time getting in.
- In public she is listening less & Ive had to go to car a few times while DH finishes up (we go to a book store & she cant stop touching stuff & running around, refuses to hold hand, once we tell her we are going to car she will loudly say "Are you going to spank me, please dont spank me" (we rarely spank!)
-When her friends are over they all mess up the room, and at clean up time she will move very slowly- picking up a small handful of toys while the other kids clean most of the room.
-Backtalk- What do you do when you send a child to their room as discipline & they backtalk you otw to the bedroom?
She has always been very well mannered. Sweet. The typical wanting to please child. Or I could steer behavior in a better direction in a few days.
She is almost becoming a brat before my eyes & IDK what to do!
Advice? Help? Any good books on discipline a 4yo? (most ive read are for 3 & under)

Yes you are definitely correct in your assumption OP. She is testing you. That's why I preach consistency! Your method of discipline always needs to remain the same and consistent.
