4 yo boy & rude/sassy attitude

For the last month or some my son has turned into this crazy diva of a kid. He's always been spunky. But the last month or so he's gotten into expressing himself by being SUPER rude. Yelling, a harsh tone of voice, back talking.

It's driving me bat-****-crazy!!!

My approach so far has been to give him one chance to say what he needs to say in a respectful/calm voice. If he refuses to try that then he has a timeout. If he refuses the timeout I place him in his bed for a longer rest/timeout.

Anyone else have a kid who is rude like this? What do you do to handle it?
