Ignore her anytime that she is mouthy or disrespectful. Don't do anything for her...no laundry, no meals, no rides anywhere, no cell phone bill paid. Hit her where it hurts the most. When she complains, tell her that until she can be respectful to you then she will be doing everything on her own. I would hit, spank, etc...my mom did that and I didn't work, I still don't respect her much and I am 37 years old. I can't respect someone that automatically hit instead of talking to me. Talk to your daughter about how inappropriate her behavior is. Tell her that she will get much farther if she talks to you about what is bothering her. It is ok, to be angry or upset with a parent but it has to be done with respect.
