I have tried everything and nothing seems to work. She wants to do what she wants and nothing is going to stop her. She thinks that she will get what ever she wants by acting out.

Is your daughter on meds?  If so, what do they have her on?  When my daughter acts out like that -- we pretty much let her know that her behavior is unacceptable and will not be tolerated. She then gets her favorite things taken away and cannot resume anything she wants to do until she has calmed down and tells us why she acted out the way she did. She must also clean up any messes she makes!!   My best advice to you -- walk away & give you both some breathing room until she has calmed down.  Hope this helps....

That sounds so familiar. I also have tried everything and nothing seems to work. I keep praying that because she knows what is right and wrong that her upbringing well carry her through. But when she's manic, i worry a lot. Sorry I'm not much help. My faith in God is what keeps me going.
