When she needs something she snaps at me, she pushes me until she gets what she needs. It isn't that she shouldn't get her needs met but I want to be spoken to with respect. When I deny her what she demands for, she yells, throws things, and asks like I hate her. I feel guilty and it is worse when I get frustrated with her and tell her that I need her to leave me a lone for a bit because I am getting frustrted. I don't want her to feel rejected by me saying that but when I tell her that I will not respnond to her demands she just pushes more. What should I do here????Answer Question

Remain calm, let her know you will not get her what she wants unless she ask nicely. Teach her manners.
Here are some books on anger management, temper tantrums, aggressive behavior http://astore.amazon.com/wwwcjkidzcom3-20?node=22&page=1
Also books on manners. Read together http://astore.amazon.com/wwwcjkidzcom3-20?_encoding=UTF8&node=2
When kids see things on paper with pictures, they seem "real". If there favorite character is acting a certain way, they will want to also.
