I would say that her premature birth probably has nothing to do with teenage behaviour...

But if you feel that she's beyond the realm of 'normal' acting out, have her evaluated for behavioural health problems.

Most likely, she's acting out because she's a preteen, and they all do at this age. If you stay firm in your handling of her, and don't give in to her, and continue to enforce consequences for poor behaviour and rewards for proper behaviour, she'll be fine.
