Stay the Course with Upset 10-Year-Old


My 10 yr old's behavior has steadily gone south since we have started laying down the law. Her latest thing is screaming "no fair!" at me whenever she gets into trouble. She then storms off to her room yelling about all the reasons why it isn't fair and how its never her fault. While I understand about ignoring the "white noise" I'm concerned that she isn't really learning her lesson. She continues to blame everyone else for her problems and its never her fault. Is there any way to get through to her? We haven't done the full on "kicked out of the garden" yet. Is it time? That seems like an extreme so we are not sure when its appropriate to use it.
