6 Year Old Laughs When She Gets In Trouble

Question

Good Morning,

We have been using the ticket system and it's worked well. I have a 6 year old girl, who seems to have thrived from it until recently. Now when she loses a ticket she says "i don't care" and then she loses another one, and then gives me a shoulder shrug, then she loses another one...etc etc. Also lately she's taken to laughing when she's disciplined. I can't imagine why she thinks it's funny to get in trouble or if it's nervous laughing but as you can imagine it infuriates mom!!! Any advice? I'm at a loss right now to get her to straighten up this attitude.
