Default What I Do

I have had the same problem with backtalking, and I was at a time when I was ready to pull my hair out. Well, I started calling my child to my attention and asking her to repeat to me what she just said or did. When I just fussed at her, it was yes ma'am with no remorse...but when I began asking her what she said or did, she had to concentrate on what just came out of her mouth, and she realized how it sounded. It hurt her feelings more hearing it come out of her own mouth rather than hearing how I heard it.
