she lies, she steals food, she throws tantrums every day, nothing works for her: time out, taking away things, going to bed early,spanking. She's out of control. She takes running down the sidewalk of our community, we have to threaten to call the police. She yells and screams, grunts and growls. We have long talks but now she uses this behavior in order to have the talks which don't work. I've had my mom, mother-in-law, and sis-in-law try to talk to her. I've read her excerpts in the bible regarding behavior and children. Nothing works! She's been like this since she was 5! I can't take it, I'm at my wits end! My 3yr old son laughs when she behaves like this and now is yelling at us/parents. She has no respect for her parents. What do I do?
