How do you deal with smart mouth children?

My daughter is a sweet little girl, but she has a really bad smart mouth. I don't even know how to deal with it any more.. and whats worse is she is getting worse with it at school with her teachers...any advice or ideas?

      Ugh.. Well, I can't tell you how to parent your child or what to do and don't know the extent or when it happens.. BUT with that said.. And here is where I say what I think I would do.. but have yet to deal with a smart mouth child, so what I really actually do may be different, but I'm hoping to avoid it for the most part..

      My goal is to nip it before it begins.. My daughter is 7 and my son is 9.. the second I hear a certain tone or they say something smart assy.. and I catch it, I always tell them. "Hey watch your tone".. and they will re adjust.. If they are frustrated or angry with me.. and they talk back or argue.. again, "I know you're upset, but you need to be real careful with how you talk to me"..

      SO far these are working.. They know a look on my face and my tone.. that says I'm not f'ing around.. enough..

      So.. I don't know what the teacher can do if you're not there. But I would definitely give her some serious on-going consequence.. remind her that she can't speak that way and then take something away.. that means something to her.. remove her valued things.. whether it's phone or tv time or iPad.. and the SECOND she takes a tone.. I would interrupt her and stop her from talking and warn her.. "Adjust your tone.. or we have problem".. or warn her.. or tell her you won't "hear" her..

      She may spend a lot of time in her room.. I would totally ignore her if she spoke to you in that way.. and nicely passively remind her.. you can't hear her..

      Ugh.. Not looking forward to this..

        I have grounded her, took her toys away, taken pretty much everything she likes or loves away and she still has it. she even snaps her finger and swings her neck as if she was a grown person. I don't even act that way for her to be acting the way she is.

            My 10.5 yr old can be a smarty mouth sometimes. When he is he gets things taken away, and I have good chats with him about it. So it's not often.
