I was in similar situation, until my daughter(2y.o) went to daycare (twice a week), she is much better now and most of the time listens to me. I guess they discipline her better.

FOLLOW THROUGH!! Tell her this is going to happen if she doesn't listen to you or do as you ask and be sure that it actually happens. She needs to realize that mommy means business!! IE: Please pick up your toys or they will be taken away for a specified period of time. If she doesn't pick them up take them away. If you please do this mommy will let you do this. Use positive things whenever possible though.
