tell her to clean her room. If she doesn't tell her YOU will clean it for her.....then if she does not clean it You do.......remove everything not necessary out of the room. that means all toys, all gadgets etc leave her 2-3 books to read her bed her dresser and a lamp. NO TV, radio, games etc. then store all of her stuff. If she wants her stuff back she will have to earn it back by being polite well mannered and no more taking off running in the neighborhood. I did this with my oldest son (only had to do it once) and he learned pretty quick that Mom means what she says. Sometimes you have to get VERY TOUGH with your kids. And if you cannot get control of her now you will NEVER be able to control her in her teen years !!!
