I get the same thing, My 6 and 4 year old do it to me all the time. I told them its bc i told you so. Why they say. I say if you dont do it. then i dont do anything for you. They stop asking. they just do.

Ummm, not sure what your questions is, but I think you are saying your 8 yr old questions everything you ask her to do.

I have the same issue with my 7yr old. I ak him to do something and I get asked why he has to do it. I have learned to always have a valid reason for asking him to do something. Usually when I give him a good reason he gets right on the task I have asked him to do. Ex: Please clean your room. (7yr old) Why? (Mom) Because we want it to be tidy so that you can find the toys you want to play with when you want to play with them instead of spending your free time searching for the toy you want.
