My son is going to be 4 in May and he is constantly back talking me. My daughter is 2 and is starting to copy everything he does. Im at the end of my rope with this! Everybody keeps telling me its because he has control over me right now and I need to get back in control. Im not saying this isnt true but instead of just telling me I need to regain control can somebody please tell me HOW. Ive tried time outs, taking away toys, and tv and nothing seems to really bother him. I need advice please...

With my daughter I had to start pretending I couldnt hear her till she spoke to me in a proper manner. Whinning, yelling, tantrums I tune them out and she's learned I only hear her when she uses her big girl words. A book my daughter's teacher gave me is called "how to behave so your preschooler will too!" sounds kinda condicending but IMO only the title comes across that way.
