Answering Back Rudely
My almost 5-yo baby girl has a very bad habit lately. She has learned to answer me back, in a curt way that is!
Example of how she likes to answer me back…
After umpteen times asking her to go to the bathroom to pee, I finally blew my top.
Me - go and wee wee right now!
Cass ignored me…
Me - if you get another UTI, I will dump you in the hospital and won’t take care of you!
Cass - SO??
Me - So you will suffer in the hospital alone!
Cass - I DON’T CARE!
I wonder where she has learned that from — the smug, rude way of answering back!!
Yesterday evening after she has answered me back rudely, I was really pissed off with this rascal. After dinner…
Cass - mummy, I am still hungry
Me - SO?
Cass - I want to eat biscuits
Me - I DON’T CARE!
Cass - why are you talking like this?
Me - that’s how you answer me. Do you like it huh??
Cass - NO…
Me - don’t talk like that to me again, you hear me? Say SORRY now!
Cass - I am sorry mummy, I am sorry mummy, I am sorry mummy…. and she went on and on babbling apologies till I asked her to shut up lol!
A typical sight if we go shopping after 9pm…
