I wonder if you might benefit from an in-home therapist to work with your daughter. If you would mention your city I am willing to do research and see what is available in your city.

I have known parent to get police involved, charges pressed and then the legal system does the discipline. I know it sounds harsh but this behavior may get worse if not stopped.

The in-home therapy programs visit child at home weekly and does family sessions periodically. The teen does grow to like the program, even though they do not like it at first.
