IDK what you can do about your dd other then find the punishment that works. Find something she hates and do that like time outs, take away fav toy, take away tv. Good luck.

Do you have health insurance.  If you do, you might want to see about getting her tested for like ADHD or something like that.  It sounds like you are having a battle really bad.  Good luck to you momma.
