Try to keep your focus on the behavior (i.e., raising her voice to you) that causes you to set limits in the first place. You get distracted from the main focus if you turn your attention to her response to your limit setting. You can approach this in a straightforward manner. First, let your daughter know that she can expect a time out any time she raises her voice to you. Then, if she does raise her voice, place her in time out (an adult-size chair) for five-ten minutes (it's important that she be seated and quiet before you start the time). In addition, to enhance her motivation, establish a reward system whereby she will recieve the reward each day she refrains from raising her voice to you. In all this, remember it's important to allow room for children to be angry with us -you have to use your judgment about what is a reasonable expression of anger.
