I am a 23 yr old mom with a 4 yr old girl and a 16th month old son. I need ideas to do with them 5 days a week. Its getting nice outside and I really dont know what projects i could do with both of them. My daughter don't think I spend that much time with her like I do her brother. She likes to talk back to me and she thinks she can do what ever she wants so I need help with 2 things. What can I do with both of them that will teach them different stuff everyday? What will help my 4 yr old from talking back and thinking she can do what ever she wants and not listen to me? Please Help!!

Okay so here we go you can take them on a panic at the park and play with them. You can have a water gun fight. I think that be so fun. Going on walks is fun too:) You can go outside and do chuke with the kids they love it. Painting outside is a little better then inside. Ball is good too. With your daughter talking back try time out do that a few times and maybe she will get the point that it is not okay behavior. When you do time out there are steps you need to do. First tell her you are going to time for four mins. then keep putting her there until she stays there do not tell her nothing when you are putting her back. When the time period is over go to her and explain to her that you put her into time put because of the behavior and that you are not mad at her and love her. I wish I could hep more with that but that is what I do and my daughter is slowly getting it. I hope this information is helpful I have a lot of ideas going through my head right now of things to do so if you need more let me know.
