Yep, it's amazing, you raise them both the same way under the same roof with the same rules and the YOUNGER ONE (who does everything the older one does) has found his own nitche! My daughter has NEVER done this (although, I am sure that soon I will eat my words for sure--if not real soon, when she becomes pre-pubescent). I will ask him 2 times to do something and on the 3rd time, lose my patience and it shows in my tone, and he'll yell at me something to the effect of, "ALRIGHT! I HEARD YOU!" and cross his little arms. That's, of course, if he's not yelling my directions back at me. MAN, children are mirrors. So, here's my question? Spank him when he does this or no! (AHHH, I smell a HOT TOPIC coming on). I have done everything else (my pre-school teacher tactics have been taxed)--put him in time-out, put him in his room, taken away his favorite privileges. Daddy's not around to "step in" when he's talking back to mommy so...what does mommy do? HELP ME HERE...I'm going to lose my MIND.
