Since dad just passed, I suspect that the behavior is stemming from grief. Does she go to a support group for kids? Your whole family in is a time of transition and she needs a more appropriate outlet for her anger and grief.

I need to ask a couple of questions:

1. What have been her consequences for this behaviour.
2. Are ALL these children living in your home?? Is it possible she is lacking attention?
