Disrespectful 4 year old

I have a 4 year old that for some reason acts so rude and disrespectful towards me. To me it seems like he thinks he is the only child, mind u he is the youngest of him and his brother. He acts as tho he was never taught manners when I'm around. He's always good for everyone else but as soon as I walk thru the door it's over with. How do I get him so behave for me? I've tried ignoring him until he talks nicely to me, I'm currently doing a sticker chart (which is not working anymore like it was in the beginning. I'm out of ideas

maybe make a certain part of everyday just for you and him. like set aside 30 minutes at the same time everyday just you and him, play a game, read etc. Maybe it's jus the attention he's seeking. Kids have a very jealous nature when they have other sibilings. I'm not saying you don't pay him any attention but maybe he knows he can push you boundaries more so he test them more therefore more time alone with him will help him understand some respect. Good luck.
