We have a 7yo gifted/Aspie girl. Love her to death... but boy, does she think we are stupid sometimes!!!
Her level of sarcasm and rudeness to us (her family members - me, DH, and 5yo sister) is nearly unbearable!!! She is so hurtful and mean to us sometimes. We can hardly stand it.
We have a behavioral specialist and our child psychologist working with us to help us get through this, and help her to get on a better path.
I'm here looking for three things:
2. Someone to tell me that from their own experience it will get better
3. And any suggestions on ways to help modify/improve her behavior.

I posted in the gifted forum because I'm wondering if parents of other gifted children find this happening to them - where their child is so bright, that they feel their family just doesn't "get" anything and is dumb by comparison?
Maybe it is just us.

It may just be me, but I'm having a hard time really getting a clear idea. Is she calling names like saying "you are stupid". Is she eye rolling "paleeze" sort of thing? Or, is she lecturing you in a condescending tone?
I ask in part because of the mention of Asperger's. Most kids with AS type stuff aren't particularly good at sarcasm at that age. Many however, may use a tone that says "I think you are so stupid" without meaning it as sarcastic. They may just genuinely be shocked that you don't know what was in their head or that you are totally uninformed about something that is obvious to them. If that's the case yes it is still a problem that needs to be dealt with because nobody likes rude behavior. I'm wondering if any of that sounds at all like what might be going on. If so, it may be that reframing it in your head as a problem of her missing information instead of a problem of her trying to hurt feelings, might be helpful as a way to deal with it (and get less frustrated).
