My oldest turned 4 in July and for a few months now he has had this major attitude. Whenever I get onto him he talks back to me and he doesn't want to share his toys. I have a 2 year old son as well and he likes to do everything his big brother does. DS1 isn't horrible, but I don't want to let it get too far out of control. I also just found out I am expecting baby # 3, so I don't have a lot of patience for his attitude. Any suggestions to help with his attitude?

Be consistent. Every time mine do something that they aren't supposed to. Off to time out they go. They don't get a reaction out of me. Just off to time out. No talking to them. When their time is up then we will discuss what they did that was wrong. Even my 2 year old knows what a time out is. Good Luck. My 2 year old wants to do everything that my teenager does. I have fun times explaining why older sister can do something and she can't.
