In the context below:
Let's say that your mom is asking if you have a boyfriend and you really don't want to talk about that, you start to complain about the food in dinner in order to shift the subject/topic. Unfortunately, she ___ your attempt and says: "Don't try to change the subject, you got to answer my question first."
Edit: The context above is only a suggestion and you don't need to fit the sentence structure.
What's a good word to describe that behavior?
