I think it's great when kids feel confident - confidence is a fantastic and very useful skill to have. When respect is being ignored, though, I can see how it can easily spill over into arrogance and rudeness. Mine aren't 8 yet but my 3 year old boy definitely presses my buttons and tries to stay one step ahead of me already! At the moment I'm trying to keep the balance of being firm and being fun - so he knows which side of me he'd rather see! Colourfulcoach, I'm noting the 'shame' tool - ready for use!
