Before you start bashing I do disipline her, but latley she has been having a mouth on her like no other. For example one day she asked me for candy I told her to hold on and then she was like I said I want some candy. Then one day she was playing over at the neighbors and I guess she wouldn't help her DD clean up the mess she helped make so her mom told her she can't come over nomore because she doesn't know how to clean she also proseded to tell her (I don't agree with how she tol her) that is she doesn't learn to pick up her mess she will get a detention when she starts kindergarden in the fall. My DD does know how to pick up and not sure why she wouldn't there, but I did disipline her for that as well. Then I am watching my nephew today he is 2 next month he was running on the couch I went to get him down then she started (5) jumping on the couch because he was running on it. What the heck what to do?

Hand meet butt....
it's as simple as that. You have to be tough. You have to use discipline every time she does something wrong. Don't wait until it's too late. You have to be firm and you have to make sure they understand YOU ARE IN CONTROL not them.

It sounds like there are inconsistent policies at your house. Your children are old enough to know what the consequences are for poor behavior and what that rewards are for good behavior.
Raising Our Children, Raising Ourselves by Naomi Aldort is a wonderful book. You can learn more at her website: http://www.naomialdort.com/
