Sounds awfully alarming, Lin. It's actually hard for me to go back and read specific previous postings, and the numberings don't show in the section within which I work. What you now describe sounds increasingly disturbed ( claiming to have stabbed her father dead ) as well as disturbing. Any chance of taking her to see a child psychologist for assessment ?
The noise when taken to a naughty corner isn't unusual and usually ceases if it fails to produce results desirable to the child. Sometimes, for instance, you might give in for fear of what the neighbours might think. It might not be that she wasn't listening to what you said, but that she didn't want to acknowledge it to her dad.
Major policy declarations like that are best made
when you are both present, so such explanations are not needed - and one might, rather, after explaining a principal or rule to her, ask her to repeat it or explain it to you both, to show that she understood it.
