I found that the naughty corner with my 3 year old works. Every time your daughter does anything wrong tell her why your putting her in the naughty corner and place her in the corner. (it does not have to be a corner, just some place isotated from her toys, tv, etc. Don't let them go out of the corner for 3 minutes. she will try to get out and tell her that every time she goes away from her naughty corner she will have to start her 3 minutes all over again. but you need to be stern with her and put her back. When you go to her after the three minutes she must say sorry to you.

With regards to the sleeping you will have to put her in a routine of a spacific time at night that she must go to be. What I did:
Alexis will go to bed a 7pm. She must be finished eating at no later than 6:30pm then we bath her and by 6:45 she must be in bed and then we read to her. I found that the reading at night would settle her down and she would fall asleep easy.
You need to find something to settle her 30 or more minutes before she goes to bed. I found that tv before bed is not a good thing so stay away from that.

Hope this helps
