I don't consider these behaviors at all normal for a child of 5. Personally, I'd ask them to have an assessment done by a psychologist or their school district, and get some answers on what's going on and what can be done to deal with it. That said, the book "Your Defiant Child" (https://www.amazon.com/Your-Defiant-.../dp/1462510078) has some great advice for parenting ANY child, but can be especially helpful for kids like this.
