Hoping some one may have tips to deal with a naughty 9 year old girl. My daughter is very mouthy, and nasty towards me and other people. She does not appreciate what is bought for her. Please help, I'm a single mum with germ thanks'

Exactly what LM said.

Start handling things as they occur, quit buying her anything other than necessities, and start teaching her the reality of life

Well, number 1 stop buying things for her. Take 1/2 of her items from her. She can earn them back, and start appreciating what she has. If you have time, start volunteering for shelters that cater families and kids. She can see how others have to live, and will learn to appreciate everything you do for her, and buy her. Make her work for stuff back.

Every time she is nasty to you or others, handle it immediately. Whether it be taking time from friends away from her, tv or computer time etc. Doesn't matter. Just address it.
