Okay moms I need help here. I have a 5 yr old that insists on acting like a mannerless brat. She was/is not raised to be this way but chooses to be. She is constantly getting into trouble at school for her mouth and not staying seated. I have tried LOTS of different things with her but nothing seems to phase her. (i.e. sitting in her room, writing sentences, no playtime, and corporal punishment) She has even told the teacher that she was a "hateful witch" out of nowhere. WTH? We do not talk this way!
If anyone has any answers I am OPEN OPEN OPEN. I need help because I am at my wits end. Negative or positive she seems to like the attention.

There's obviously a reason that she's doing what she's doing. Is this a sudden change from prior behavior? Has something in her environment changed? Any medication changes? Personally, I'd try to stick with the positive things she's doing right...catch 'em being good. Have you or her teacher tried a good behavior chart? (e.g., basically she would get a token for any such good behavior she does. When she collects enough tokens she can turn in for something such as a couple minutes of free time or whatever else would be rewarding to her.)
