My twelve year old daughter talks about how she has to have the best clothes to fit in school and how everything I give her isnt enough or up to the standars of her school. I dont know what to do about it because its getting to the point where she's embaressed to go outside to school. Please give me some advice.

My twelve year old daughter refuses to step outside if she isn't perfect. It gets to the point where she gets up 2 hours before she's supposed to get up which is 6 just to shower, brush her teeth, and plan out her outfit for the day. I'm worried she won't be getting enough sleep. What worries me more is the fact that she doesn't feel confident in her own skin and can't seem to ever be happy with herself. Please help me from a mother to a mother so that I can help and support my child.

Twelve is a tough time. How long has this behavior been present? Does it seems like she is well rested? Are her grades stable and her mood relatively pleasant? Does she do any sports or extracurricular activity?
