What is with the sassy mouth?

 My guy is starting to jump on my nerves with the little attitude and sassy mouth.

Nothing major yet, but Im getting the 'Sheesh' and a little smirk or the 'FINE' with a huff when being told to do something.

I usually nip it in the bud pretty quickly but still I'm not prepared for the attitude. It seems like it just happened too. Like one morning he just woke up and started this. Sigh, it is going to be a long summer.

Anyone else have an eye rolling, arms crossing, huffing and puffing, sassy mouth on their hands?

 Yep. My daughters try that all the time. It seems like they need daily reminders to knock it off. I usually tell them they have a choice: either quit the attitude or I can fill their whole day with chores.  :D usually does the trick

I hate that!  It's nipped in the bud immediately here.  Cannot stand it when kids are disrespectful and not going to put up with it from mine, but it irritates me that I have to deal with it at all!

no, if they try that there are consequences.

 When it started I at first ignored it, that didn't work. I sat her down and told her calmly, that we didn't approve of that kind of attitude and wouldn't allow it, and if she wanted to be treated like "an older" (she was constantly saying "but I;m getting older"), that she needed to show respect, and she would receive it. And that there would be consequences for any eye rolling, hmph, or sighs of irritation. I told her she could find other ways to tell me respectfully that she didn't like my decisions, but that she would be required to say it in a respectful voice. Nip it in the bud before they think they can disrespect you in other ways.

they tried it believe me.  they get to the age where the horomones are raging and they think they know it all but believe me when I say I tolerated ANY of that for about 2 seconds.  lol  Good luck!!    :)

I tolerate a small amount of sass and sarcasm, since I use plenty of my own sass and sarcasm. What I can't stand is the dramatic hormonal years from two tween girls!!! When the tears start flowing, I send them to their rooms, once they have collected their composure they can come find me.
