I challenge you to change the way you think about her behavior. Ask yourself what her intention is. Most 7-year-olds aren’t intentionally disrespectful. So, what’s the underlying cause of the behavior that looks like disrespect? THAT is what you need to focus on and address. My parenting mantra is “My child isn’t GIVING me a hard time, he’s HAVING a hard time.” That helps me keep the right perspective and keep calm, which helps tremendously.
