This sounds ike pretty normal 3 year old behavior. I'm glad you aren't jumping on the medication bandwagon! While your daughter is in preschool, the day is very structured as well is the discipline. At home it's not always as easy to do this. It helps to try though. Children thrive where there is structure and predictability. Try to have a set time for most of your activities at home. For expample play time 4-5 dinner time 5-5:45, bath and clean up time 5:45-6:45, etc... Your child will have an easier time obeying once she knows what activity is coming next.
