Are all kids this selfish?

I'm trying to NOT sound like a bad/bitter mom but I am seriously sick and tired of my 7 year old's crap!  She is so selfish and snobby and just a drama queen.  She is so mean to her brother.  He will sit there and try to talk to her, saying her name over and over again and she'll just ignore him and pretend he isn't there.  When i tell her to answer him she's like "oh I didn't hear him." 

Sometimes with her crap I seriously just think she deserves a smack in the mouth and few days locked in her room.

Maybe it's the age.  I only have one...she's 7 in August and she's gotten to be a "drama queen" as well.  Along with purposely ignoring me and my SO (her daddy).  We literally have to say things 3 or 4 times to get her attention, when we KNOW she hears us from the beginning.  And she'll keep on when we tell her to stop things.

We have a 10 year old who is EXACTLY the same way.... but ours is a boy. He ignores us, doesn't do what he's told, pretends he doesn't hear us... it's frustrating.

No, some just go through a nasty "me" phase around that time, but they do get over it. My nephew, however, is 9 and is a selfish little snot 99% of the time. :/

My 6 year old does this to her 3 yr old sister too. But to be fair the 3 yr old can dish it too. But i feel like my 6 yr old is so mean to her sometimes. It frustrates me. I am constantly trying to figure out why.  She was never like this until she started kindergarten! Before that she was always sweet to her sister.

Maybe try telling her, the first time she ignores you, that the next time she loses priveledge a ... a second ignore will lose her another priveledge and so and and so forth until she gets the message?

I will only tolerate being ignored once, then I'll stand right in front of them and say "eyes on me."  if they think they're going to avoid that, I will actually firmly grab a chin and hold their head still until they do.  my oldest is 16, and while he'll pull other crap he won't try that one.
