Educate And Engage To Avoid Backtalk
Let your kids know that you are always there to understand them and their needs. At the same time, educate them on the need to follow rules. You should make them realize that they can come and talk to you without having to backtalk. Even when you engage them in healthy discussions, let it be a timed one so that it does get blown into an argument. Make your point and stop it there.
