My Daughter lately has started saying “I KNOW ALREADY!” or “I KNNNOOOOWWWW!” to everything that is said to her. Doesn’t matter if it’s about the phases of the moon or that it’s time to get ready for bed or if my stepdad tells her that acarophobia means fear of itching … She knows already!
First we sat her down and told her it was rude and to stop - no change. Then I took away TV cause that is the general punishment for rudeness and backtalking in my house. That had no effect either (except crying), though this usually curbs what eveer rude behaviour she is displaying.
Finally, I have resorted to telling her every time she says it, she will get a swat on her behind. This got some result unlike the other attempts but I’m hoping for a better solution cause she now only says it to other people when I’m not around.
Any ideas? Anyone one else have know it all children?
