Jodi I wasn't trying to offend anyone, like I said it was just an opinion. I know that some parents do not believe in whipping their children, and that is completely their right as parents. This is just the way I was raised and the way I will continue to raise my child. While I do agree that some parents take whipping way to far and it does result in abuse, which I highly disagree with of course. ButI am sorry if I offended anyone with my post.

Whipping? Seriously? Where I live whipping IS physical abuse and you'd be arrested for it. There isn't a "definite" line between abuse and discipline, it is actually a very FINE line, and whipping a child totally crosses it.
Anyway, Ashley, what have to you tried? It is hard to give advice to a post like this when we don't know what you have tried. What are the consequences for when she doesn't listen or shrugs at you like that? Are you consistent with the consequences?

This is just an opinion, but have you tried whipping the child, or just time out? From my experience whipping works pretty well, and I'm not talking about abusing the child, there is a definite line between abuse and dicipline. But that isn't for some parents. You could try taking his/her favorite activities away, first time for an hour or so, second 3-4 hours, and third for a whole day. And whatever you do stick to what you say, if you let him/her get away with something once after telling them no, he/she will think "hey if I push hard enough mom will let me do it anyway"
