Eight year old is driving me mad!

My 8 year old dd is driving me crazy. She has a 7 and 4 year old sibling both have Sen so life is a bit pressured. But she's rude, doesn't listen, silly, immature (she weed up the alley next to our house the other day), is mean to her siblings and generally behaves like a child much younger than her age. Is this normal? Am I being too harsh? My mum is thoroughly embarrassed and frequently tells her off when she goes over for tea on her own. I split my time as best I can but dh works long hours as he's the only one able to work and my dd doesn't appreciate it when we go out.

I have no experience of SEN, but I wanted you to get a reply! I'm afraid it doesn't seem like abnormal 8yo behaviour! It sounds like she thinks she doesn't get as much attention as she thinks she deserves.

Have you talked to her teacher about her behaviour at school? That might give some perspective?
