When my first child was 4, she began resisting all commands, no matter how politely or subtly they were put. If asked to put away the dishes, open or shut a door, it was "No, I won't." When I suggested a bath, which she had always loved, she shook her head and refused to move.

After he'd gotten a few things off his chest-- you've heard them all, I'm sure-- "It's no fair! You never want me to have any fun! You let the girls do it! Meanie!"-- he simmered down to a grumble and got ready to so to a party in the neighborhood.
