What the heck is up with that?
Anytime we raprimand Caden for anything, he bounces back with "NYO" (means "no) or "Youre Mean" or "No I didn't" (especially when he obviously did) some other backtalking crap.
And it could be over something really stupid like "Clean up those blocks, please." or "
He has choices, so I know its not that he doesn't feel in control of his life. He chooses his own clothes. He chooses what he wants to eat from the grocery store, helps me fix it and eat it (he has so many food allergies which are different from mine so we feed him his own food.....avoiding all of our allergies together woudln't be healthy).
So, how do you stop it? I can't ignore it because its his way of getting out of doing something I NEED him to do.
