I would say "Go to bed now" and tomorrow while she's at school? Clean up her room...make her do without her stuff for awhile and she'll learn lol. :D

I agree ESP with the start of the weekend. Great lesson for respect.

Yes, one of the ladies in another group I'm in takes her kids' stuff away.  Everything.  She has gone as far as taking their bedroom doors off the hinges.  They have to earn their stuff back by doing chores around the house and in the yard.  Granted, her kids are 16 and 12, but taking some of her stuff away just might work.  Just make sure she earns it back........

I go into my 6 year olds room with a bag. In fact, I just did it to the playroom because she didn't want to clean it. Now it is becoming a nursery 5 months early

I'd do the bag only if it works on her. Never worked on my son. Just made him mad and more ornery.
