Welcome to the site.
Please answer a few queries
1) is there any other child in the house other than her ?
2) do her parents shout or scream at her or have frequent altercations between themselves which happen in front of her?
3) Have the parents tried positive and negative reinforcement tactics to curtail hef behaviour ?
I will get back to you once you reply to my queries.
