Well, I have an 11 yr old sister and she started acting up in school around then as well. The best thing to do is to talk to her counselor at school and make sure that she has someone that she can talk to about anything. Sometimes it could be just her trying to find where she fits in and sometimes it could be resentment. My sister was acting out because my father vanished without warning and she was very upset but didn't know who to talk to. She now is able to talk to her counselor and she has a program at her school called Big Brother/Big Sister. It is an amazing program! In Vermont we have something called FIRST CALL, and that is a number that you call when you feel that you can't control a situation or need a little advice for you child. I would ask her pediatrician if you have something like that, it is a great program that opens doors for you!!
