negative attention is still attention. you would get more of a reaction if you don't pay attention to her when she is not being nice. I use to tell my son when you decide to be a good boy mommy will play, then I would walk away and do some thing else. still watching with a momma eyes but not looking or acknowledging him until he says sorry momma.
