How would you describe this behavior?

An older child doesn't want to do chores right now. She's visibly annoyed (sighing, pouting) but not argumentative. She changes into her "Stop child labor" T-shirt and then begins diligently doing the chores.

Kinda clever, kinda funny, nothing too heavy; at least the chores are getting done. It's like something Kevin out of 'Home Alone' or some other Disney style movie might have done: harmless precocity. I was far worse, it was a miracle day I did any chores.

Clever, but as long as the work is getting done correctly I am ok with it.

My wife would throw a brat like that across the room.

Why would the kid be considered a 'brat'? for the T shirt or for sighing/pouting?

These are the kinds of things that nowadays are an alternative to being a brat. Acceptable self expressions that aren't considered 'disobedient'.

Passive-aggressive. Slightly immature. Clever, disrespectful, funny.
