The behavior needs to be stopped ASAP. My son used to do that to me until my current husband came into our lives. He had never really had a father role model before. But as soon as my husband (son calls him dad and thinks he is his real dad) started dealing the punishments, my son quickly turned around. My husband was abused by his father so he will not even spank the children. But he isn't scared to put them in their room, in the corner seems to work really good, was their mouth out with soap when they back talk, or sometimes what works for the outdoor kids is making them go outside and do a chore every time they act up. Something small but its helped out greatly. So my suggestion would be to try and let dad handle it when he is around and you just kind of back off a little and see what that changes. Good luck

tbh this is all very new behavior my daughter went on a trip with my grandparents and came home and it seems like everything has hit the fan since when she first got home and was acting this way I thought it was maybe just getting back into routine and getting used to the rules at home again but it is now rubbing off on my 2 year old and getting out of hand they have never really acted this way before my son was very shy and calm and my daughter was very polite and respectful but now they have both completely changed I have tried time outs and having them go to their rooms but they just laugh and I have taken toys from them and my daughter looks at me as if she is ready to say ok mom is that all you got. I just really don't no what to try
