My 4 almost 5 year old daughter smiles and even laughs at me and her her dad when we tell her to do or to stop doing something, she will even smile after she gets spanked and we ask her if she know why she got spanked. It is really frustrating and I don't know how to stop it. Any advice?

I have tried corner, and when it comes time to get out she just looks at u and smiles when you try to talk to her at all. I have not tried doing it without saying anything besides when putting her in there the initial time. I will have to try it. Cause corner has not done anything either:\

To her a spanking means nothing. I find time outs.....if done right work really well. You need to be consistent and follow through. They get 1 warning and if behavior does not stop it is time out. The time out spot is a spot away from people, toys, tv. You briefly state why she is there and then set the timer for 4/5 mins. If she gets up before then then you put her back WITH OUT SAY ING A WORD and the time starts over. At first it may take hours for her to get it. While in time out there is NO COMMUNICATION with her .... NO MATTER WHAT SHE SAYS OR DOES. The no communication is key! Once time is up the you again state why she got a time out and then she must say sorry. If she does not want to say sorry then she sits until she is ready to say sorry.
