Silly boy, listening is for kids


Our 4 year old was a pretty good listener right up to when he turned 4. We've weathered some big tantrums, which seem to mostly be in decline (frequency & length). Now, he has started to just "be goofy" & not listen. He laughs & acts silly but doesn't listen. The behavior is most common in the afternoon hours around 2 - 4, which maybe coincidentally is after his "quiet time" (he doesn't nap anymore). I'm not sure if he's being willfully disobedient or just attention seeking after an hour or 2 of time by himself. Any thoughts? For now we're slipping into "time out" as punishments
