Many of you gave me great advice re: how to deal with my argumentative preschooler the other day. I've started responding, "No" and if she argues, saying, "You heard my answer" and walking away.
It works, I guess. The problem is, she's taken to screaming bloody murder and jumping up and down when this happens. Haha! It wouldn't be an issue except we live in an upstairs apartment with a SUPER cranky guy downstairs. We've lived here a year and a half and he *still* complains about everything under the sun.
Are there any different tactics I should try, or is Downstairs Dude just going to have to deal with it until she gets out of this phase?
