We have an almost 7 year old daughter who misbehaves from time

This answer was rated:

We have an almost 7 year old daughter who misbehaves from time to time. Sometimes it's jealousy over our twins (who are now 3), other times she just really wants things her way. She still has tantrums when we give her a "time out" and I wish she would be more compliant in general. If this is school age what will adolescence look like?! Do you have any "positive discipline" ideas or books to read?
I like having my patients use the Supernanny book. It gives basic strategies for dealing with many issues that might arise. I also use these strategies in my practice.
