I have found out that time outs work VERY well, but you have to be VERY CONSISTANT. Kids will test their limits and if something they did last time got what they wanted then they will do it again. You have to follow throw EVERY time she does the behavoir. With my kids all I have to do is point to the time out spot and they know, but that was after doing the time outs on a consistant basis. Another thing that I found that helps is having one-on-one time with them. Sometimes the bad behavior is more wanting attention and they feel the only way they get the attention is when they act up. So spending some one-on-one time with them during the day helps.
