Name Calling and Defiance

How do you all handle name-calling? Does anyone use tabasco sauce or soap in the mouth punishment? My son says things like "chicken mommy". I know it sounds cute, but it is really annoying and I'm trying to teach him not to be disrespectful. He is also so defiant. What causes this? Have I over-parented him and harped at him too much? He is only 6 yrs old.

I think it's just the age, they are all going to test their boundaries.
