I have a 4th grader who lies all the time, wont turn in her homework and is getting bad grades, and has a lazy I want to do whatever I want to do attitude! I have her in therapy, on meds (have tried several kinds), have her involeved in sports, and church. I have tried spanking, grounding, taking fav. things away, therapy, and everything else I can think of. I need help please because I dont know what else to do. She doesnt fight with people but she has signed my name at school on stuff, so I am thankful she isn't fighting, but boy is she bossy! I feel so angery all the time and I feel like I need nerve pills to live with her. Someone help??

We tried that for 4 months.......didn't work she found 5,000 other ways to entertain herself weather it was singing, making finger puppets with her hands, and cleaning just helped pass the time!

Simple remove everythng from her room but her clothing and bed. Then do not allow her out to play, on the phone, use of tv or computer, until she smartens her act up. Depending on how stuborn she is this may take awhile but stick so it. When she lies give her a punishment she doesnt like, ie washing all the toilets in the house, or washing the floors (on her hands and knees)
