Sassy, stealing daughter.

My daughter breaks a rule. I get upset with her and then she turns it around and gets angry with me and storms off. This cycle has been going on for some time and I've got to end it. She is very smart and talks back. I've done time outs. I've taken away the little TV she's allowed to watch. I've taken away the one treat she gets after dinner. We don't do anything fun for a couple of days. Now she's taken it to a new level. She was caught stealing $30 from my babysitter. And what really stinks is that her younger sister (only by 19 months) has to go without TV some of the other fun things.
Any suggestions on how to end this?

My daughter is the same, taking money, and food treats and lying about it all,
I am at my wits ends, if anyone can help me too, it would be much appreciated.
I took away her favourite things and the behaviour stopped for a little while but now it has exculated again in the last month.
I have spoken to the school councillor and she said i am being to harsh by taking away what she loves most as it makes her insecure, which makes her want to steel more.
Have any of you had any success with stopping it

My 8 Year old has sticky fingers since she could walk. I dont understand this kid. My husband has told her that he will take her to the scared straight program and I think thats the only way she will stop because I dont know what else to do with this kid. Punishment has'nt done anything to her.

My daughter has the sassy... she like yours when she does something wrong turns it around and makes it me that's in the wrong.. gets angry and storms off... I think this is first round of hormones...

She is very smart.. and I think that is part of the problem.. it sucks when I go away from a disagreement with her.. feeling worse than she does! lol.

I have tried all the things you have tried.. and she gets over those very quickly.. I find that I am always having to up the punishments for them to have an effect!

I am not sure what to suggest except to say that maybe you should keep doing what you are doing... but not exclude the 19 month old from doing fun things.. make sure you do fun things with the little one.. and exclude the older one when she has been naughty?

My daughter is the same way. She steals stuff from school and $20 from the babysitter, and me. She knows it is wrong to do and we make her give the stuff back her self. It has come to a point we have to check her pockets when we go out to visit r firends house to make sure she dont take anything. We took everything thing away like you did, and also gave her time outs. I turned around and stolen her stuff that she really likes. Like her favorite doll she carred around and sleeps with.I jus walked in to her room and took it. She woke up screaming that some stole it. I told her it dont feel so nice when some take your stuff. She had stoped but only for a lil while. She has stared up again. I think we jus have to keep telling them to stop and hope when they get older They will learn. My husband said jus let her get caught so she will learn what will happen when she gets older.
