Okay so here recently my daughter has started up with an attitude problem. I have no clue why she has all of a sudden just started talking to me crazy...she yells at me and talks down to me and this has now been Goin on for a couple days...she even blames me sometimes for the reason why she yells at me
her biological dad isn't in her life but my boyfriend of now almost a year has been in her life this whole time and she really respects him but with me idk if it's just her going through a rough stage or what but she had me crying last night. She is really a good kind hearted kid but her attitude has gotten out of control...does anyone else deal with this problem? I need help I do plenty of dixie line but it's like it's not even affecting her. ....

My 4 year old is the same way. Her biggest thing right now when she is mad at me. Don't talk to me Mom. My 2 year old does some because she hears her sister.

I understand. It gets frustrating at times. I think the biggest thing is testing boundaries.

Sounds like she turned into a "threenager". It's crazy how a sweet little three year olds can turn into a mini teenager over night! She's testing you, be firm, and let her know you're her mother and she doesn't get to talk to you like that.

Both of my girls went through a smarty mouth phase. I think they were about 3 or 4. It seemed to come on all of a sudden. I guess it got better. Then they were teenagers ...

Dixie line? What's that?

I would not go to her level, don't let her feed off your enotion. Be strong and constant. Show her this is not acceptable. Time outs, losing privlages, losing favorite toys.
