My eight year olds behavior is out of control. She back talks, hits, screams, and says she will not do what ever we say, she says we can't make her. She does this when I am brushing her teeth, or giving her a bath, or if we tell her to clean her room, or to do something simple and only takes a minute to do. Then it turns into a war zone. We have tried the behavior chart, money jar, grounding, time out, taking toys away, write sentences, we have even tried therapy years ago, and others things. I just don't know what to do anymore. Me and my husband are so exhausted! I feel like I am going nuts!! I don't know!! We are going to church in the morning. I am hoping that will help a lot. Maybe their is other parents out their that are having the same issue as I am!

I can not see how it is rarely since she does all this behavior but if it is then you need to get this kid evaluated and see what else is going on. I do not know an 8 year old that ever got this bad. My son tossed fits like this up until he was almost 11 but we had a diagnosed delay to deal with too. But he never did it all the time either. i would suggest that you have her tested;.

Do you let her have everything she asks for? Do you give in when she cries about things and getting her way?
