I am babysitting a child who is very polite... except when it comes to answering people's questions. When she doesn't feel like answering you, she simply ignores you, even if you ask her over an over again. She will only reply after you say her name in a lower tone and she knows you're angry, and will reply usually with a loud WHAT!?! I know she doesnt have a hearing problem, because for example, today she was painting and I asked her "what are you painting?" I asked her twice, she looked up at me both times and kept painting. After I said her name and "I asked you a question" she looked up and said, "A DUCK" ..so I know she is listening. It's very rude and I know she really has to get over it. How should I discipline her for this though?? I have talks with her about it all the time but she just doesnt care. I was thinking that maybe I could just remind her about it in the morning, give her a warning the first time she does it, and the second time put her in time out. It seems harsh though and I'm not sure she could remember those instructions all day. But maybe if she went to time out she would learn.
