my 14 year old niece is regularly defiant, refuses to do anything that involves chores or anything no related to playing with her friends, she takes things from us and her friends and will lie about it even if you catch her, says mean evil things when shes angry (like wishing we would die and threatening to kill us) and she will talk back and argue with you til your blue in the face if she doesn't get her way

Your welcome. I know it can't be easy!!! I have seen it several times with friends and family. The conceling is a thing that they stress. Depending on your nieces background could explain why she is acting out. Sometimes it's a trust issue or just testing your boundaries. Be the parent first and a friend later. Please keep with her. She needs it.

Consequences is the main thing I can stress. Keep it up. It's hard and she is going to test you at every turn. Conseling is, also, a must!! It has helped so many people and it's not a something to laugh at. Please consider it. If she has had a rough childhood that would explain most of it. Hope that helps. It sounds like she doesn't have any trust or respect for anyone. Keep it up and get her some help.
