Need help w/ back talk (9 yo)

My 9yo Constantly back talks me and I'm not sure how to deal w/ her responses but to tell her EOC (end of conversation), yet I want to know what is on her mind, and more importantly what is behind the actual back talking action. Can anybody help? It's gotten pretty bad recently....

Have you sat down with her and asked her why she is being like that?
It's best to sit down when you are both calm and have a good discussion, not berating or accusing, just talking and listening. Listen to what she has to say as well as letting her know how it makes you feel.
Once you have talked about it, come up with a solution to help her stop and think about what and how she is talking to you. It could be just a word to use that will let her know she is pushing it and to stop.
