Your daughter sounds to me like a child who lacks self-worth, and if that's the case, punishment is not what she needs. What she needs is encouragement and reinforcement of all of her good qualities. Sometimes as parents, we tend to see our children as extensions of ourselves and we tend to see their "bad" qualities as reflections on ourselves, and we forget that we are to be training our children to see both sides of themselves. If all your daughter sees of herself are the negative qualities that you are pointing out, then she very well may feel that there is no need for her to try to do any better. Try approaching her from the positive side rather than the negative for a while, and see if you don't get more positive results.
