I am losing my patience with my 6 and 5 year old daughters!!!!

I am trying to declutter as well as trying to earn a few extra dollars with their kids' toys that they no longer play with or don't want anymore.  My 5 year old was putting things that she JUST got for Christmas in the pile.  Mind you, they didn't get very much but the things we got them were things they had picked out while we were at the store during before Christmas trips or in fliers or what have you.  When I mentioned it to her, she just says, "Well, I don't want them."  Now for the other one...she is 6 and lately she has had a HORRIBLE attitude!!!  I don't know what else to do with her.  I have tried to explain MULTIPLE times how inappropriate and disrespectful it for for her to talk back to her or her father or give us an attitude like she has.  I have taken away her favorite toy and the computer and the TV...and she is still so mouthy.  I don't know what else to do.  My daughters are growing up to be such ungrateful little brats.  They use to be such great kids.  My DH and I do not spoil them by any means and we don't like it when they get away with things at my mom's and have limited our trips there as well. (my mom thinks it's funny when my 3 y.o. DS curses and encourages him to do so and when my girls have attitudes they think it's cute and funny) but because we've limited their visits to once a week when we go to my parents' house after church on Sundays, I'm clueless as to where this is coming from and I don't know what to do about it!!  Suggestions PLEASE!?!?

Sorry. I have a 7 year old DD and she seems to be the same way at times. I hope it's just a phase. I don't have any advice. Good luck!

 as far as I know, both my daughters do just fine in school but are a bit mouthy at home.  I don't get it.  My 3 y.o. son is usually the crazy one but at school, he is one of the best behaved kids... LOL I think after not having her tablet for 2 days in a row she got annoyed with the punishment but I tried letting her little brother and sister play with it with me there to help and my 6 y.o. didn't like it one bit.  So between that and our chat and her after dinner chores, so far so good today and last night... if the cpu, TV, or tablet didn't work.... I was going to have to think of something else...timeouts don't seem to phase her too much

Ugh...I have two and three year old daughters.. the three year old is mouthy. She doesn't listen no matter what I do..she can also be mean at times. Its a constant battle with her. My youngest is starting to copy. It's driving me insane. Both are angels at preschool apparently.
