My 11 year old daughter often acts helpless when I KNOW she can do things. Other times she wants to be treated like a "big girl". What do you do to encourage a child to act their age not just when THEY want something?

i had to do 2 things--with my son i started bathing him, dressing, him, feeding him etc when he would complain i let him know if he didn't need me to pick out his clothes he didn't need me to make his drink after 4 days it was much better. with my daughter i would make her a detailed list and sit with her while she did everything and after a few days lack of privacy was her number 1 complaint
