It's called tough love. Stop allowing her to feel like she has some type of control over you if you give in or feel bad for telling her no. And talk to her with some authority and if she continues take privileges away until her attitude is adjusted.

my dd tried this it's very frustrating! I see a lot of moms screaming do this & don't do that well we have 3 children all with different personalities, they are people ya know lol ~ raising children is not just black and white concepts there's a lot of grey area there,I set my dd down & explained to her how disrespectful it was the way she was talking to me & that as her mother i was not going to continue to allow this, i told her how much i loved her & that instead of me always telling her what & when to do things that she had a right to voice her opinions but that i would ultimately make the best decisions for her but she was allowed to discuss the issues with me, she calmed down a lot, she still slips but not as much, good luck & 1 more thing you can be her friend as well as her mother :)
