Learning about discipline

We've been having trouble with backtalk from the seven year old girl. I haven't really taken it seriously and lately I have noticed that it seems to be getting worse. I'm a little at a loss for how to approach it, so I picked up a little expert reading on the topic.

The fix seems easy enough. Swift and consistent response, no tolerance for it, sticking to your guns, etc.

Until I got to the part where I am not supposed to have a reaction.

Yeah, that's the part most people conveniently forgot to warn you about. And don't let the fact that they're 7 fook you - those kids can SMELL fear.
