 Ground her from the tv and phone if she can't be more respectful to all adults and her siblings. Talk to her and tell her how you feel and the rules and that you did not raise her to be a rude kid. And tell her if she finds out that she continues to lock her siblings out of the hosue and continues to be rude to her grandmother or babysitter or whoever watches  them while your at work then she will NOT be able to watch tv at all! You have got to nip it in the butt right now before she gets totally out of hand. Goodluck! Just remember this too shall pass.

I agree and is there anyone else that can watch them cause that situation is not working she knows your mom can't fully watch them right so she is going to keep doing it.

I agree as long as she knows her grandma can't do anything about it then she'll keep on doing it.  I would say yes ground her from the tv but I am worried that she will just turn it on anyways if she won't listen in the first place.  She needs someone who can make her stick with the punishment that you decide on.

I think it was in "love and Logic" they talked about getting "Mable, the babbysitter from hell." You'd probably only have to do it once. I would have grandma there, and when your daughter does her usual, grandma can call "mable" and she comes in and your daughter spends the rest of her evening in her room with no entertainment. Consequences and boundaries are what she needs and wants.
