How do you all handle sass from a preschool-aged child? DD has gotten a little, um, feisty these days. I don't think it's anything out of the ordinary, but it is still something we want to address. It makes DH especially angry. When she gets an answer she doesn't like or when something doesn't go her way, she does a little stomp or kicks out her foot and says "I'm leaving and I'm never coming back, hhmmph." And sometimes she does a little angry cry thing. So how do you respond to situations like that? DH does an angry "Sadie, we do not talk that way in this house" - if it's in combination with another broken rule, maybe a time-out or a few minutes in her room. I certainly don't want her to grow accustomed to speaking to us (or anyone else) like that. But I also think that may be the reaction she's looking for....so I would rather kind of ignore it. Or just remain neutral and tell her we don't talk like that. DH thinks I am too easy on her for the attitude stuff. (And then seems to get angry with me when it happens, if that makes sense?) I really want the sassy behavior to stop, but I am just not sure how to do it quite yet. I feel like I need a plan of attack - and then we need to be consistent in how we handle it. Thoughts?
