what type of schedule?  time out works for mine or reminding her to use her words and helping her verbalize which words to use to express her emotions and distraction.

From your profile she's three years old. Go for a routine. Do the same things in the same order at approximately the same time. You don't have to be married to the clock, but try to keep things somewhat predictable.

I've found the best way to correct negative behaviors is to avoid them in the first place. Mine had his negative behaviors triggered by routine changes. So if something needed to be changed, I'd give him plenty of warning ahead of time. Positive behaviors got positive reinforcement, like stickers on a behavior chart.

To correct negative behavior try redirection or a reward chart.

I reinforcing behavior you like positively. When she does something you don't like ignore it. For the positive say she says
" thank you "you tickle her tummy over enthusiastically with a big smile and say "oh I love how you said thank you" A really helpful book for learning how to positively reinforce behavior is Dr. Kazden from yale. Called the kazden method
