I'm going to say this is a "What?! Why?!!" Moment because as a parent, I now know that when, or at least when I say don't talk back, is because children should have respect for what we decide as parents. And especially middle school children LOVE to argue and try and negotiate/"prove wrong"/ or point out the unjust. Dude, no. Don't talk back. You got yourself in this mess. Shut it, and take responsibility. End rant.
