All she does is throw a fit and make a scene. I can control it better than most, but now she's getting in trouble again this year at school. She is very intelligence and smart, so that isn't the problem. We got her Glasses in Kindergarten, so i know she can see.....i just don't know what to do anymore.

Constant, and consistent consequences. You have to lay down the law now. Otherwise she's going to continue to turn into an even bigger brat.

If you didn't let her get away with it last time, and you don't let her get away with it this time, or next time, she'll eventually get a clue. And, yes, she'll piss, moan, groan, complain, cry, whine, throw fits...as long as you stand firm, you will do fine!

I've tried time out, taking away her favorite things, spanking, telling her I am very upset and disappointed by her actions, etc. We have tried reward charts, once she messes up she gives up. I have tried giving her "special" tasks to do to keep her busy when we are, say trying to clean house, and to no avail, she has no interest. She never wants to do anything anyone else wants her to do, only what she wants to do. She is a twin, and her sister is the COMPLETE opposite! I don't know what to do at this point!
