    tell in return

    When I say something to do or advise my brother, he wouldn't listen or obey to me, instead, he will say something to me again in a angry way. He always would like that only, whenever I asked him to do something, he would say something or other thing in return.

    Is he "rebutting" or "scolding" or something to me?

    Please give me the word.
