My 4 year old has suddenly stopped giving in to instructions, most times he'll do exactly what he's told not to do and when you try not to notice him he'll scream it in your face that he's done exactly what you said not to do. Worse is that when you tell him not to do it again he'll laugh and just keep doing it. What should I do now

@~♥Little Miss Can't Be Wrong♥~
The only times he responds alittle is when you threaten to take his favorite toy or food away from him or take him away from the others. Even so its no longer all the time he'll respond. And thank you a lot for calling my attention to the fact that he's beginig to test his boundries, I guess I'll have to implement other desciplinary actions

What kind of discipline are you implementing? Sounds like he is at the normal stage for testing boundaries. My recommendation is to choose your battles. Also, time outs for many kids works like a charm.
