My daughter is going to be five years old and lately she has been a big smart mouth. I feel she is testing me and my dh. She answers back, is a little know it all and has become very bossy. She is our first child and I worry she has signs of only child syndrom already. Not sure how to get her to stop being a smart a#$, any suggestions? Thanks.
Stay on her, every time she responds sarcastically or gets bossy, say something! Tell her, this is the correct way to answer my question, and tell her the correct way. If she sees it's not getting it with you, it will slowly go away. I think all kids test the waters at some point, you just have to show them it's not gonna get it!
