Yvonne told Briefly News that she understands that her son has both her and her husband's character.

"So the most important thing for me is to note his behaviour, sometimes I know when I'm dealing with mini-me and sometimes I know when I am dealing with mini hubby.
"I always look at the depth of the situation before reacting somehow (telling him I'm going to give him a paw-paw)."

Yvonne's preferred method of discipline is taking her son's tablet away as it makes his whole world stop.

Attitude and tantrums aside, Yvonne absolutely loves being a mother and said it was rewarding for her, especially after not being able to carry up until full term back in 2015.

"Being able to bring life to this world and have to carry him to term and see him grow. The fact that I'm able to see him (Rori) grow every step and not missing any new developments is exciting for me," shared the amazing mom.

When your kid gives you attitude

According to, parents often find back talk from their children incredibly frustrating. However, what they may perceive as defiance or disrespect is usually a sign of something else. For example, children who lack impulse control or the ability to self-regulate may be more likely to talk back. Additionally, some children may talk back as a way to get attention.
