Developmental Milestones For 11 Year Old Girls

The tween years is a period of rapid development for children. In addition to going through puberty, recent research has shown that there is a massive increase in the production of gray matter in the brain at this time. Much of this growth affects the frontal cortex, which is the area where executive functions are housed. These functions include the ability to maintain short-term memory, problem solves, control impulses, think, plan, and organize thoughts. All of this shows itself as broad leaps in cognitive functioning. An 11 year old girl will be able to reason using more adult-like logic and consider more complex hypothetical situations.

A child's vocabulary grows at an exponential rate during the tween years, often gaining 4,000 or 5,000 new words a year. This makes it a good time to start using more difficult words when having conversations with your daughter. It will be easier for them to use context clues to deduce the meaning of words they have not previously heard.

Adolescent egocentrism makes an appearance around this time and will affect how your daughter feels about herself and how she reacts to you. She will pay more attention to her appearance as she begins to believe others notice and care about her looks. She will also enter a period in which she believes all of the emotions and experiences she is having are unique to her. In addition to being highly self-conscious, your daughter will most likely exhibit erratic personality changes. She may be happy at one moment and weeping the next, or act loving and sweet to you one day, then act as if she hates you the next.

You will most likely also notice that your daughter begins to act embarrassed that she has parents. This is because a greater precedence is placed on peer opinion at this time in her life. She will be looking to become increasingly independent and discover her placement and interests within a larger community of peers. You can expect your daughter to want to spend more time with friends, and seek acceptance from them at all costs.

Buying The Right Kind of Gifts For 11 Year Olds


Go to top.

Anything that allows your daughter to cultivate and show off her personal style makes a great gift for an 11 year old tween. She will be so hyper focused on her appearance and being accepted by friends that she will most likely be jumping from style to style. The type of jewelry or clothing she loved one day, she will dislike the next. This is because she is still finding her personal style. For this reason it is best to buy clothing and jewelry that is budget friendly, or find items that she can change to adjust to her new styles, such as a watch that comes with a variety of band colors, or a craft jewelry set that allows her to make new styles of jewelry based on a whim.

This is also a good time to show her that it is okay to defy traditional gender roles. Gone are the days when women were not accepted as scientists or doctors. One can foster their daughter's interest in some of these fields by purchasing gifts that are entertaining and engaging within these realms, such as a microscope, science kit, toolbox, or games focused on biology or anatomy.

Since she will be looking to spend more time with her friends, gifts that she can use with them are generally a smart choice. A makeover set she can use with friends during slumber parties will get a lot of use, as will craft sets. This will give them a creative outlet to focus on while they stay up late and gossip about other school mates.

Fostering A Mother Daughter Relationship


Go to top.

The mother and daughter relationship is one of the most profound in life, and can give a feeling of closeness that no other band can match. This does not mean that it is not without its troubles. As a girl moves into the teen years, this relationship is often at its most tumultuous. A 2004 study by the University of Cambridge found that arguments between mothers and their daughters occur on average every 2.5 days and last upwards or 15 minutes. To put that in perspective, mother-son arguments occur on average once every 4 days and last 6 minutes.

The strength and health of a mother-daughter relationship will affect many aspects later in her life, such as the ability to make and keep female friends and her self-confidence. This is why it's so important to foster this relationship at a young age before the trying teen years are in full swing. Gifts that promote mother-daughter time are a good choice for 11 year old girls.

The best way to promote mother-daughter time is by purchasing gifts that the two of you can use together. These gifts should be based on the interests of your daughter, rather than your interests. As the parent it is often your job to force yourself to perform activities your child finds interesting if you want to spend time together. This is because you will be placing more of a precedence on mother-daughter time, whereas your child may need some additional motivation.


#10.The Cookbook for Girls


I purchased this cookbook for my daughter who just finished her first year of college. She's a real "girly-girl" and this book definitely caught her eye with all of it's pretty, feminine colors and swirly type when she opened the gift basket I had placed it in. She called me a day later to tell me that she was reading a really great book. When I asked her what she was reading, she told me it was the cookbook I had given her. She was trying out some of the recipes and that she and her boyfriend both loved what she had "whipped up" so far. No matter what the age, this cookbook is perfect!

#6.American Girl


American Girl magazine is geared to girls aged 7-13. Much younger than that and many girls aren't reading at the appropriate level yet. Much older and they may be ready to move on. But honestly, I'm surprised to read so many reviews by 10 or 11 year old girls who feel they're too old for this magazine. I don't believe girls that age NEED magazines based solely on makeup tricks, flirting with boys, etc. AG has articles such as dealing with relationships with friends. Like when you and your best friend start to grow apart. Or when she moves away. Articles like one about a girl whose family travels around the world on their sailboat for two years. Crafts that you can actually be proud to give at the age of 10.
