Advice For My 5 Year Old

My 5 (Going On 15) Year Old Has Seemed To Be Misbehaving ALL The Time Lately. She Is Usually A Loving, Caring, Helpful, Smart, Funny Little Girl; So This Behavior Is Not Normal For Her!

Last Week, She Didn't Eat Veggies At Dinner. I Made Sure She Was Aware Of The Fact That She WILL Be Having Green Beans Again Tomorrow. The Next Night, She Did The Same Thing... Refused To Eat. She Usually LOVES Veggies! So, I Took Her Pink Barbie Castle Away Until She Decided To Make Better Decisions.

The Next Day, I Let Her Out Of Her Room (We Have Child Locks On Them) Early In The Morning To Go Potty. I Ran Downstairs, And I Was Unable To See Her. She Decided To Sneak In My Room, Steal The Pink Castle Back, And Go Back To Her Room.

This Past Friday, Her Brother Was Sitting Next To Her While She Played Her Computer Game, And Out Of Nowhere, She Leaned Over And BIT His Ear Really Hard!

Right?! I Was BEYOND Shocked. Not Eating Her Veggies Is One (Somewhat Minor) Thing. Stealing AND Biting Was Where I Drew The Line.

So, She And Her Brother Spent The Weekend At Their Grandparents. I Explained That This Was A Brand New Week, Lets Be Good! She Earned A Stuffed Animal Back Last Night For Being Good. This Morning, She Decided To Get Into Her Closet. (Which Is A HUGE NO-NO In Her Room.) She Then Lied About It To Her Dad And Said She Didn't Get Into Her Closet.

I Have Absolutely NO Idea What To Do Anymore. She's Not Eating When She Knows She's Supposed To. She's Lying, Stealing, Hurting Her Brother, And Not Listening To Rules. I Don't Know How Many Times I've Told Her To NOT Get Into Her Closet.

What Do Ya'll Think?
I've Taken Toys, Spanked Her Butt, Threatened That A Police Man Would "Arrest" Her If She Steals... Nothing Is Working.
