How do you deal with a 7 yr old who does not like to listen?

Consistent consequenses. Rewards and lots of encouragement when they do as they're told. "It is so nice when we can get along." Follow through when you say you're going to do something. If you say "Cut that out or we're leaving." Do it if the behaviour doesn't stop. They very well know when you're a pushover. A great book to read and re-read: "How to Talk so Kids Will Listen and Listen so Kids Will Talk." Hang in there!
