I have an almost 5 year old.  I think they are going to talk back some, but you have to decide what you consider to be disrespectful.  Most of the time I try to ignore the talking back, but if she sticks out her tongue and makes the "raspberry" sound when I ask her to stop doing something, I might send her for bedroom time.  It depends on the attitude behind it.  HTH.

He thinks he is funny and when I tell him to knock it off, he just repeats what I say, so maybe I should just not respond.  It is just sometime he interupts me when he is in trouble, and doesn't really listen.  I should add that he is ADHD.  But we are dealing with that through diet.  I just don't want to be a push over, even though I don't think I am.

Personally, it would bedroom time for me if he interrupted while he was already in trouble. Otherwise, ignoring and/or leaving the room might work well. Good luck!
