She is 12 and was adopted by my grandmother. My grandmother can no longer control her and she has not ever punished her for stealing, manipulating or lying. She does stuff because she knows that she will get attention, whether it be negative or positive. I am looking for an effective way to punish her. I have tried taking everything away from her, busting her bottom, making her do physical activity (such as sit ups, push ups, and calisthenics). I just need some suggestions. Nothing is working. She refuses do to dishes, laundry or school work. I just need an effective way to teach her that if she doesn't do the things she doesn't like to do, she will end up broke, hungry, and nasty. I have tried to explain it and it is getting me no where. I would just really appreciate some help. Thanks
