Frequently Asked Questions

What is a typical 11 year old girl like?

Being an eleven year old girl is not for the faint of heart. Not only are their brains and bodies changing, but they also have to cope with the trials and tribulations of middle school. It's no wonder preteens can be moody - we would be too!

For an eleven year old girl, friends are more important than ever. This stage of emotional and social development adds extra pressure to navigate the complicated dynamic of the sixth grade social scene. She may drift away from long-term friendships as she's exposed to new people in middle school, and she may have a new BFF for every day of the week. (Don't worry if you can't keep up!) Above everything else, she'll want to belong to a larger group and know where she fits in. 

And here comes the contradiction of being an 11 year old girl: even as she's trying to blend in with her peers and not stand out, she'll also be craving independence and wanting to express herself as an individual. She will want control over her clothes, hairstyle, and room decor. And she'll be eager to spend time with friends and without adult supervision. Encourage her sense of independence by making a list together of what activities she's allowed to do on her own, and praising her when things go well.

At this age, her brain's frontal cortex is still developing, which means she's more likely to push limits and take risks, especially if it gains her social connection and acceptance. Help build resilience against peer pressure and bullying by developing her self-esteem. Many preteens boost their confidence with part-time jobs that put them in positions of responsibility, such as tutoring or babysitting. And for the best of both worlds, let her friends get involved too. We always thought "The Baby-Sitters Club" seemed like a fun idea!
