Testing her boundaries

dd1 ( turning 4 in August) has suddenly turned into Miss NO! Every suggestion,, request comment is greeted with a nah! or NO! she is just refusing to be helpful or co operative. Is this a 'normal' phase and is she finally starting to see other behaviour at kindy that is starting to come home - or not?!?!

I have become my mother in reply ' i don't care whether you want to or not - just do it.....' or the other one ' don't you say no to me' which is invariably met with another NO!!

It is driving me mad - know it is small in the grand scheme of things but boy it can really get up one's nose. I know she is also doing it at sn kindy but will then turn around and do it...

any suggestions??
