How can I stop / deal with this without totally losing my mind? All suggestions welcome!

Get used to it. it will pass, only to be replaced with "why" or something else equally irritating.

DD1 is 2.3yrs and does this.
Ive learnt to just ignore it. I sometimes throw in a question such as "do you want a biscuit?" and when she says no automatically without thinking, she gets caught out and told to think before saying no.

NO is just the stock answer. Can be frustrating but should pass (I hope!)

Ha! The first word dd ever uttered!

It'll pass. As well as 'Why?' look forward to 'Pleeeease!'!

And "What for?" and "how"

Mine emphasizes her refusal by saying "I say no!" in a very authoritative tone.

My 2.6y old has 2 older sisters so has had front row seats to lot's of sisterly arguments & wittnessed mummy loosing her rag more times than I had hoped for.

She now will shout at the top of her voice "you are a naughty mummy are you" when I tell her no.

If I ask her to do something she will tell me "no, I am not ever ever again"

I really can't wait for WHY?
